  • Charming park in Midtown Manhattan. Open from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm, it is beautiful any season of the year. My favourites are Christmas time because the Christmas Market is so beautiful! you can find nice and warm food and some very pretty presents for your loved ones. Summer is the other one I like because you can enjoy the sunshine while you have a nice bit over there. The restrooms are really clean.
  • Early Christmas market at Bryant Park with many interesting vendors showcasing lots of talent. Custom hats for men and women that are absolutely fabulous. Scarfs and imported leather goods. Crystals, teas, spices and chocolates and many more beautiful holiday gift ideas. Definitely felt the holiday spirit which was nice especially in these challenging times. Definitely worth going to.
