Bryant Park

Situated behind the New York Public Library is Bryant Park, a well-cultivated retreat that hosts a dizzying schedule of free entertainment during the summer, including the popular Monday night outdoor movies. In the winter, look for an ice skating rink and pop-up shops for the holidays. The park also boasts free wireless access.

Bryant park is adorable! It is rather small, compared to Central Park though. You get a beusroful view of the surrounding buildings. I recently attended free yoga in the park! I then ate at the Le Pain stand in the park. The food was delicious!


What isn't there to do in Bryant Park? You can sit in any of the many chairs and have a nice lunch/coffee, play ping pong, ride the carousel or take a look at some of the shops. In the winter, the ice skating rink is also open. Bryant Park is also home to various events throughout the year. There's free yoga, movies, concerts, and something I recently participated in: juggling. There's a beautiful fountain located in the center that's a great reference point for the huge park. A great place to take a quick break and chill.

Bryant Park, located beyond the NY Public Library is an active park that hosts events thoughout the year.  In the spring and fall, enjoy sitting outside in the park on the grass.  There are a few small shops to pick up snacks and their is also a larger restaurant.  During the summer, the park will have a small carousel and also sets up ping pong tables around the park.  They also have movie nights where they show free movies once a week during summer.   Finally, in the winter, they put a skating rink in the center of the park and rents out skates to enjoy the city from the ice.

When is a park not just a park? When it's Bryant Park! A lovely place to pop a squat in the summer to read during your lunch break, it's also one of the most popular sites in NYC. Free movie screenings in the summer (get there very, VERY early) and a winter village when it's cold (it's got the city's only free ice-skating rink, along with an outdoor bar, silent discos and a holiday market), it's a must-go-to.

Bryant Park is one of my favorite outdoor spaces in New York City. It's a very peaceful park for being right in the center of Manhattan. Tall trees (not birch, but some similar smooth-barked tree) line wide, stone slate–floored walkways. There are always about four food booths and coffee cars, so you can grab a light bite and sit at one of the many, many tables. There's a fountain, outdoor movies int eh summer as well as yoga, musical events and theater performances, an ice-skating rink in the winter and a holiday market...the list goes on. There's also a small bar and bocci courts and a ping-pong table, and occasionally a reading corner.
