  • Lovely location! A park with all sorts of greenhouses and places to linger or relax. Located on 42 Street and not far away from Times Square. What a difference! Opposite the hustle and bustle of Times Square is the tranquility that Bryant Park exudes. Not that there are no people, but these are either having lunch or relaxing their work or just playing table tennis. A delightful oasis of tranquility!

  • A well-placed park when you need it most. Often crowded but there is plenty of space for all who visit.  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.
