Seasonal Events at Bryant Park
While the Rink in Rockefeller Center and the Wollman Rink in Central Park are extremely popular, Bryant Park has a rink of its own during its annual Winter Village - the best part? It’s completely free. If, however, rented skates and falling in front of strangers isn’t your cup of tea, the Winter Village has food vendors selling all sorts of cozy holiday foods. This is also a perfect time to find original holiday gifts or just wander in one of New York’s favorite winter wonderlands.
Summer is a different scene. Keeping up with New York’s outdoor summer craze, Bryant Park organizes an annual outdoor film festival. You’ll have to be ready to run to snag a decent picnic spot to rub shoulders with New Yorkers and watch classic films. This time of the year also means Broadway in Bryant Park - a concert featuring the best hits of Broadway productions.

That said, your modern room at the Royalton is just steps away from your new love affair. Bryant Park is a perfect place to find new things to do in Midtown before or after grabbing a bite in our Forty-Four Restaurant or having a few drinks at Bar 44.
