Lots of people fill this park at lunchtime. Its a great people-watching location. Lots of food and seating, although you'd be amazed at how hard it can be to get a table.....It's worth it just to walk through if you only have a little time.

We stayed just around the corner from this park , so we visited it on a few occasion during our stay. There was an out doir bar there with a big tv screen so we could catch up on the world cup.
It looked like the bar was wellnused by the locals as well as turist as a picnic area in the middle of the city, brilliant park, and very ckean restrooms as well !

We walked through and ended up sitting and watching people play games and the park was setting up for a movie night, so couldn't get a great view of the fountain, but was very nice anyway.

Enjoy a sit down and a coffee in this pleasant park in the hubbub of the city. Perhaps not a destination in itself but a good waypoint.

Delighted to find this park! Great large community park with people at small cafe tables chatting and eating (sandwich shop at the park), reading area with books and newspapers free for the time you sit there, free table tennis, lots of trees and shade. At night they show outdoor large screen movies or have music.

Metro lines to anywhere on edge of park. Easy walking distance to Time Square and Broadway theaters.

Negative: long lines for women's bathroom.
