Enjoy almost 4 hectares (10 acres) of greenspace nestled in the heart of Manhattan at Bryant Park. Adjacent to the New York City Public Library, the park's expansive lawn, decorated with monumental sculptures and stately fountains, provides a place to sit and escape the bustling city. Feel like a kid again with a ride on the Heritage Carousel, or test your luck with a game of chess against a local. Stop by the Reading Room, the park's open-air library, to browse through a book or a copy of the local newspaper.

  • Bryant Park has their Winter Village (lovely pop up shops) & free summer activities. They have their Art Cart from April-October. For this winter, they have brought back the ice bumper cars. Reservations go very fast. It is a 10 min time limit and it is not free. However, the pop up shops are lovely to look around at.
  • We tried the ice skating rink, and it was a great deal of fun. A good place to see and be seen. The service is good. They have restrooms you can use while wearing skates. You need a reservation, but the price is free.
