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.

Great place to rest after walking in the heat of the day. People play games on the lawn. Men were playing board games. Children were running around. Great place to view NYC culture.

What a joy to relax at Bryant Park during the day and with all the hustle and bustle of Time Square. Located a block away, you can sit, enjoy the food truck vendors for food, lay on the grass and catch some sun, or just...More

I love this park. It's smaller than Central Park, but I like it better. Games and Reading areas ring the periphery. Nice green space in the middle and lots of trees. Cute fountain and carousel. Family friendly, but fun for adults only too. I enjoyed...More

the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building,
iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop

We will be spending a few days (Feb 5-10) in NY close to Bryant Park. We're wondering if there are ice skates available for little kids ages 2 and 4. Aside from the rink and carousel, what other activities are available that week? Thanks and we are looking forward to visiting the park soon.

I would say no, Bryant Park is not a good running location. It is small and private to the people who live on the park.

Friday and Saturday during December and early January are often the busiest times to skate. While the line will likely not be that long in the morning, it does gets crowded in the afternoon and evening. This year we have... More
