In the context of pre Christmas season then, with its large ice skating rink among the skyscrapers, the craft market and the temporary restaurant, has an incomparable charm.
I always like to visit Bryant Park during the Winter, as it gets decorated and ready for Christmas. Lot of small stalls selling gifts, decorations etc. They have Ice Rink to stake, where you can rent ... more »
A wonderful place in the city to let you catch your breath and see some greenery. The lawn is a great place to lay out and get some some, and they offer movies at night in the summer. The restaurant on the patio is delicious, with plenty of options and can satisfy and taste. There are many places to sit and read a book, or get a drink. The park also offers public activities and serves as a meeting place for students such as juggling classes, table tennis, photography, and other fun activities.
I always enjoy going to Bryant park especially during winter holiday and summer holiday time. During the winter holiday time, Bryant park have most of the food vendors and shops that's you can buy for Xmas or gifts for friends and families. I just recently went to Bryant park last week, they hosted free movie at the park. The Park open at 5pm for people to have picnic, it's good for families, friends or even good for couples too. They also have free water, coffees, treat and also they have few vendors where you can buy food. Most people usually just bring there own food and drinks to the park as they watch movies and hangout. Movies don't start until it's almost dark too.
