The visit to NY was special and the kids really enjoyed hanging out in Bryant Park. They remember this place from so many movies, they have seen. Wish we were here with the kids during winter, so they could ice-skate.

Lovely park setting year round. I rode the carousel last week and felt like a kid again, waving to strangers who smiled and waved back! Lots of greenery, flowers, and places to sit. In the colder months, lots of crafts and interesting items for sale...More

Good park to sit and eat. Very relaxed atmosphere with various kiosks that sell food and drinks. There is also a nearby Whole foods where you can buy your food from and sit/eat in the park.

A nice resting place for a break while exploring the bustle and hustle of a big city. Can get a drink while resting or there are several restaurants all around the perimeter of the park.

This park, though not large in size, offers a large number of community-enhancing services, from games to classes, from food to music, and they do it all without direct funding from the government. As an avid (though long inactive) chess player, I was impressed by...More

This is a unique little area directly behind the New York Public Library. There are always lots of things going on, plenty of room to sit and relax and lovely places to eat. One of my favourite parts of New York to visit

If you are in Manhattan, make a point to walk through Bryant Park if you need a break from the zaniness that is the rest of the city. Beautiful little park!

This is a beautiful little park which is extremely clean and well taken care of. Right beside the outstanding architecture of the library and close to the Empire State building it is a great place to have a little rest and enjoy the green space.

Get a good map. If you aren’t familiar with the subway walk, take a taxi or Uber. Think of Manhattan like distinct walking sections. On our first trip to NYC we took a car/taxi from our hotel to the 9/11 Memorial and... More

No it’s a small rink and most people are just leisurely skating. In fact, they have little plastic penguins and snowmen to aid children who need help skating. It’s just good fun for everyone.
