  • I love this small park. It's kind of a precious Jewell in the midst of a concrete jungle. A place where you can make a stop and take a deep breath an enjoy a cup of coffee or a juice. It's beautifully modified according to each season during the year. Conveniently situated next to the New York Public Library. I get relaxed there (in the park) after a long time studying in the library.
  • This is a fabulous park! It is a privately owned park (who knew?) with lovely green space. It is the perfect place to grab a dinner to go and eat outside. Whole Foods is right across the street, and there is a great restaurant at the park called "The Porch, sponsored by Southwest Airlines." The grounds are clean, there are plenty of chairs. There is even a carousel for the kids. We visited NYC for 5 nights and we had dinner here each night.
  • I get the opportunity to walk by Bryant park in the evenings and the opportunity to walk through it in the mornings. It's a great, relatively quiet place in the heart of Manhattan to sit and chat with friends and just enjoy the ambiance of the City that never sleeps. It is closed by 11pm but you can still see the beauty of the flowers and gardens. Fashion week is held here as well as many concerts and sometimes they have ice skating in the winter. It's no where near as large as Central Park, but it has it's own charm. You might forget you were in Manhattan.
  • This is probably my favorite park of the city. I eat breakfast in the park frequently before work. You couldn't ask for a more well kept, lively place to be. The bathrooms are newly renovated and the park is always having tons of events. Accidentally I have stumbled into a French market and a Mexican dance party among other things. Definitely a place worth going to.
  • Great place in the New York City near Times square building. I saw lot of people sitting n relaxing, doing office work. Maintenance is good. Lot of chairs to sit n relax. It has a yard well maintained
