Bryant Park has a French-style merry-go-round, open year-round, plus a well-maintained lawn, with chairs and tables. The outdoor Reading Room has picture books and summertime story times. In winter. Take a spin on the free ice-skating rink. The park also has clean bathrooms, a rarity in midtown.

As others have said, this block of green space is quite a nice place to take a rest from walking and touring the city. There are lots of tables and chairs to sit at that are not specifically for a particular restaurant, and there's plenty of lawn seating as well. It was very crowded while we were there and it...

Bryant Park is like a miracle in midtown. Amid the modern skyscrapers is this charming Beaux Arts park, replete with plane trees, emerald lawn, marble fountain, bistro chairs, pavilions, etc. There are lots of little places for lunch and snacks, as well as the Bryant Park Grill restaurant. The park is particularly delightful between Thanksgiving and Christmas, when it has... More

Went to escape the crowds. It turned out the park was extremely full. Consequently, had lunch at the restaurant at the park. It proved to be a great choice on a beautiful afternoon. The outdoor patio had umbrellas at every table to block the sun and was very pleasant. The menu had limited options but based on your needs will... More

I've been to this park many times, both during the cold winter days and the hot sunny summer days. It's always buzzy and full of things to watch or do. I've had a go at learning to juggle, play ping pong, listen to live piano Jazz, do yoga, shop during market day, go on the Merry go round or simple... More

We have visited Bryant Park in both winter and summer and there is always something different it has to offer. It is a great place to grab and coffee or lunch and sit at one of the many table and chairs and watch the world go by!

Put a bookmark in your NY sightseeing plans and find Bryant Park. Give your feet a rest and maybe grab a snack or burger at Shake Shack or any of the several nearby eateries. The views are amazing and the people watching is just as fantastic. Nice to see people chatting on a nice day.

Bryant Park is a respite in the middle of a busy, noisy city. A nice place to stop for a refreshment and rest you feet.

We first spotted the park from the 3rd floor bar of the nearby Residence Inn. First, we visited it at night. It was well lit and people were seated all over or walking around. There was a concession with tables in the park. When we explored more during daylight, we saw that there was also a restaurant and an active... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
