I loved Bryant park!!! And the shops that were in it. Ice rink was so pretty and at night all lit up. I could spend the whole day there.

I love the ease of wandering into Bryant Park if I only have a short time. If time allows, I stop for a tuna sandwich at the kiosk, grab a seat and enjoy the view. The people watching alone can keep me smiling!

Great craft market and food stalls offering better value than many stores. The ice rink is a bit of fun. The public toilets are excellent!

A great little place with shops and eateries situated within the park. The star of course is the ice rink which regular gets cleaned during the day. A super little place to lose a couple of hours. Would recommend when in New York
