A Park that offers so much, out door activities, food, a place to soak up the New york sunshine or cool off under the trees amongst the beautiful gardens and the bonus the best Public toilet in Manhattan in opinion.

We took a break and sat down for a bit. Nice place to stop. Enjoyed some food at Le Pain Quotidien’s kiosk at Bryant Park. Nice park for kids or adults.

We stopped in the park for a lunch time snack. There were plenty of chairs and benches to sit in the shade and a good range of food available at the different food stalls. A lovely restful interlude in a busy day.

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.
