Bryant Park

Bryant Park is a 4 acre green space behind the NY Public Library's main branch.

It is located between Fifth and Sixth Avenues and between 40th and 42nd Streets in Midtown Manhattan. Verrry popular park."Of all the parks in all the boroughs, I would have to say this one really, really captures what New York City is about. The range of people you see.. its staggering. Especially in the winter season, when the Ice Rink is up and all the shops set up there.. its really a great moment you feel like you're a part of. I've lived in the city all my life, and if I ever want to connect back to the full feeling of being part of the fabric of this city, I go here for it."

Pets: Walk your dog, on a leash and not on the grass, and clean up after it.
