Bryant Park is one of the most fabulous places in New York City! This fabulous park located in such a busy, crazy, city is such a joy! It is fun 12 months a year, as always something going on, but in the summer months, it is even more special.
Bryant Park was the first home of NYC Fashion week, for about 16 years, before it moved to Lincoln Center in 2010. There are events going on all the time, and you can check their calendar to see what is scheduled when you are visiting.
This park is a great place to take a break, from all the sightseeing, and relax. The wonderful architecture that surrounds you, the NY Public Library - Bryant Park Hotel - Chrysler building in the distance, is something out of a dream. They play bocce ball, their restrooms have been dubbed the cleanest in the city, weddings are very common as photographs here are sublime.
Le Carrousel in Bryant Park is such a treat for the kids, and a beauty to see for the adults too. What a wonderful tradition to keep alive for the youngsters of today.
Dining in Bryant Park has wonderful options as well. Bryant Park Cafe has a lovely space outside to enjoy the nice weather, the Southwest Porch equipped with rockers, swings, and Adirondack chairs typical of those found at expensive hotels and resorts, Lady M Cake Boutique is a marvelous choice to pick up a piece of cake and take it over to Bryant Park, you can pop in the Bryant Park Hotel's Japanese dining restaurant, Maison Kayser is located on West 40th Street,
- DON"T do Chipotle as it's a chain and there is so much better options! -
You are also right near Grand Central Terminal which has a fabulous foodie selection!
I hope you enjoy my photos below of Bryant Park, and that it lands on your Bucket List! It is truly a New York City gem!
