BRYANT PARK
PHOTOS MAPS STREET VIEW

One of the most popular parks in New York, this spot is a favored meeting spot for natives at any given time of year. Named in honor of abolitionist William Cullen Bryant in 1884, the park faced decline in the 1970s before its renovation and reopening in 1992, making it the desired location it is today. Regular events are hosted in this urban green space, and the Reading Room, an open-air library, serves as a meeting place for intellectuals. In the winter, a Christmas market and the free-admission ice skating rink attract hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.
