Explore Bryant Park

What to Eat, See, and Do

Nestled in between New York City’s most iconic avenues, Bryant Park stands as an oasis in Midtown. Perhaps best known as the home of the flagship New York Public Library, Bryant Park has much to offer beyond the tomes of that beloved historic landmark. Located just a short walk from Hotel 48LEX, this green respite from the concrete jungle offers plenty of things to eat, see, and do.

Eat

Strolling through a beautiful park on a nice day without anything to sip on is, quite simply, not the New Yorker way. Lucky for you, Hotel 48LEX is close to Bryant Park where there are kiosks where you can grab small bites and drinks, including a welcome transplant from Brooklyn: Joe Coffee Company, which roasts ethically-sourced beans. If you’re in the mood for a more leisurely dining experience, you can step into Bryant Park Grille’s garden-themed dining room for an intimate meal—and some great people watching.

See

The thought of trying to see a movie, concert, and Broadway show, all in one place, can leave even the most seasoned New Yorker stumped and calculating subway times. However, Bryant Park happens to be one of the only places in Manhattan where you can catch all three. The spring and summer months bring weekly movie nights, free concerts, and Broadway performances, right to the Bryant Park stage.

During the holiday season, the Winter Village turns Bryant Park into a whimsical wonderland with an ice rink, carolers, and festive market. It’s the perfect place to pick up one-of-a-kind gifts for everyone on your list.

Overall, if you are in town for leisure or business, Bryant Park is a quick walk from Hotel 48LEX and is easily accessible to enjoy all that Bryant Park offers.

Do

The real crowning jewel of the park is undoubtedly the Library. Regal and just the right amount of intimidating, this architectural feat houses a century of history. A walk through its echoing hallways and ornate marble staircases feels more like an expedition than a day spent at the library. And time seems to stand still when admiring the reading room, which looks more at home in a royal palace than on 42nd Street.
