Bryant Park was simply magical. From the ice skating to Christmas carols to the warm cider and the marketplace of warm food, Bryant Park drew us back each day. A wonderful place for all the family.

Well this is a beautiful little park surrounded by beautiful buildings, hotels and restaurants. Worth the trip day or night. It's buzzing with people, kids playing and just lovely to visit on a spring or summers evening.

No it’s a small rink and most people are just leisurely skating. In fact, they have little plastic penguins and snowmen to aid children who need help skating. It’s just good fun for everyone.
