star-4
942 Reviews
Bryant Park
Bryant Park, off bustling 42nd Street in Manhattan, encompasses nearly 10 acres (four hectares) of green space in the middle of the city. Visitors will find historic monuments, benches, blooming flowers, and kiosks with vendors offering coffee and snacks. Whether you play a game of chess or nap on the grass, Bryant Park is a relaxing stop in Midtown.

The Basics 
Guided walking tours, food tours, and holiday tours in Midtown Manhattan often pass by, or through, Bryant Park. Consider booking one of several guided tours that explore the grounds. Alternatively, try a hop-on hop-off bus tour that passes by the park and stroll at your leisure. It’s easy to combine a trip to Bryant Park with a stop at the main branch of the New York Public Library, located around the corner on 42nd Street. 

Bryant Park has several unique features, including a carousel, free ice skating rink, and a Reading Room, which lends visitors books and magazines and offers public literary events such as free poetry readings and workshops. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Food options are plentiful in the park. Bryant Park Grill features a full menu and rooftop dining, while Bryant Park Café offers informal meals. 
  • Bring the kids and enjoy the park's free events, games, and ping-pong tables.
  • Bryant Park has free Wi-Fi.

How to Get There
Bryant Park is conveniently located between 40th and 42nd streets, and bordered by Fifth and Sixth avenues. Centrally located in Manhattan, Bryant Park is very easy to access by subway. To get to the park, take the B, D, F, or M subway line to 42nd Street/Bryant Park or the 7 train to Fifth Avenue.

When to Get There
An ideal year-round destination, Bryant Park always has something happening. On weekdays, the park is busy during lunch hours and after 5pm—it's a popular destination for dining alfresco. To avoid crowds, arrive in the morning or midafternoon.

Visiting the Bryant Park Holiday Market
During the holiday season, the Bryant Park Winter Village market is a perfect stop. Inspired by traditional European Christmas markets, the village has boutiques, holiday shops, and food vendors lining the park's plazas and terraces. Pick up perfect holiday gifts for the family, or grab artisan-crafted handicrafts and souvenirs to remember your visit.
