Bryant Park Reviews
Un polmone in piena New York. E' un'area verde con panchine, piante, tanto spazio per rilassarsi. Dopo una lunga passeggiata in visita alla città, ci voleva un posto per riposarsi.

It feels like we're in the middle of the countryside and not in downtown N.Y.
Beautiful arts, jewellery, and other gift ideas. Delicious food. Ice skating. So festive and fun. You coating spend hours just walking around and looking. more »
After Central park, Bryant Park is the best in the city. It is full of people all the time. You will find a lot of street artist,musicians and painters. In the evenings they are playing movies. The park is in the heart of the city so if you want to eat or take something for drink it is going to be just around you. Great place to relax and hang out. Love this place :)
My favorite park in New York City! Can be both quiet and full of life at the same time, but I always find it relaxing. The Christmas Market is really nice, and I'd like to be able to watch a movie sometime when it's used as an open-air cinema. I will come back whenever I'm in the city.
