During November there is a Christmas Market ans ice skating at Bryant Park. Great atmosphere at night and a novelty for someone from the southern hemisphere. During the day Bryant Park is a great leafy place to be.

Organizers have covered a part of the park and installed a pretty big ice skating rink! Surrounded by the holiday market and beautiful lights, this is a great spot to enjoy during the day or evening!
