Now a prissy picnic spot, that football-field sized lawn between Fifth and Sixth, south of 42nd used to be a Midtown dealers paradise. Now, bright-light pop artists such as Hillary Duff perform here, garden tours promenade through the grounds and worker-bees in their khakis perch on blankets on the fescue for midday getaways. What a difference a decade (or three) makes. Bryant Park is still home to an abundance of free events, from weekly film screenings in the summertime to indoor reading series in the winter.

There are a lot of good places to ice skate in the city, but most are heavily booked with classes and hockey leagues, so hours for the general public are limited. We like CitiPond at Bryant Park because it's pretty much for leisure skaters; the pond is state-of-the-art and good-sized (100 feet by 170 feet), and it's free! If you're hungry, stop by Celsius, a two-story restaurant with great views of the park, for real food or drinks. Skate rental is a reasonable $13, and for your own skates,... More »
Next time you lounge on BRYANT PARK's grass, consider that 1.5 million books are less than six feet below your butt. Thirty-seven miles of the New York Public Library stacks run beneath the esplanade, in a storage facility added in the '80s. With books below, trees can't put down sufficient roots on the lawn, which is one reason for the open space. And you thought it was so you could see the big screen More »
