Bryant Park Reviews

This is one of those mini parks that is very cool and iconic to visit. The really unique thing about this park is the little market they have in and near the park where you'll find different kind of shops like jewelry, so on and so forth. Very close to Rockefeller as well and I think it's cool they have this big area for ice skating which is free(you only pay for to rent the ski equipment) so this is one of those free and beautiful things to do and visit in Manhattan.
Beautiful place to walk around or sit by the ice rink and enjoy the happenings. Cute shops to peruse through. Lots of food options for quick bites. Bar tight next to the rink. Huge Christmas tree that reminds me of the one at Rockefeller Center, but less crowded. Wish we had more time there.
