In the summer there are free movies. In the winter there is free ice skating and the Christmas Village. Be prepared to join throngs of residents and tourists. This is a bustling place on your must-see list to feel the real energy of this fabulous city.

This park is about a 5 minute walk from times square. It is had a very beautiful Christmas Tree and festive decorations, as well as ice skating and many many different markets stalls following the theme of a European Christmas Market. I found the vibe very similar to Convent Garden in London and really enjoyed our visit. Definitely worth a... More

Another beautiful attraction in NYC.... Between all the stores and food kiosks/nooks, the ice rink, the tree....relaxing and fun in certain corners and can be overwhelming in others during the holiday. Always recommend going after dark because of the lighting but fun during the day as well.

In the 1970s Bryant Park had been taken over by drug dealers, prostitutes and the homeless and was considered a no-go area by ordinary citizens and visitors. Today it is a wonderful place to sit and relax. It even has a free bathroom on the northeast corner. Bring food if you plan to stay a while. Good place to have... More

You get a great view at night of the Empire State Building all lit up from Bryant Park. The market was a bonus and something to look at other than all the skaters on the temporary ice rink. Ok to watch for a while but gets a bit boring if you dont know anybody skating unles you do street photography... More

This is a great place to visit for permanent market stalls and an ice rink in the cold months. We visited during the Christmas week so was busy but great atmosphere. Close to radio city music all and Rockefeller centre

Christmas Morning at Bryant Park was great to see young and old skating; sitting at tables drinking coffee were families and people seemed to enjoy the atmosphere; worth seeing while in NYC. Did not do skating, but people were in line to skate on Christmas Day.

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.
