Busy little urban park and a great place to sit a spell. This park has the nicest public washroom you can imagine! Worth the short queue.

This park is just up from Times Square and well worth a visit. Green grassed area and lots of small tables to take a seat and people watch.

Bryant Park is a jewel, a lovely green oasis just off hectic Fifth Avenue. It is at times like an outdoor "room" for people, who make use of the Parisian style bistro tables and chairs, the ping pong tables, the big lawn on which they...More

We will be spending a few days (Feb 5-10) in NY close to Bryant Park. We're wondering if there are ice skates available for little kids ages 2 and 4. Aside from the rink and carousel, what other activities are available that week? Thanks and we are looking forward to visiting the park soon.

I would say no, Bryant Park is not a good running location. It is small and private to the people who live on the park.
