Park Behind the Library
New Yorkers love this small park in the heart of Midtown. With its French benches, colorful flower gardens, green lawn and numerous cultural events, Bryant Park is a peaceful place to take a moment to watch the world go by. Named after poet William Cullen Bryant, the site of this historic park has played an important role in New York City. After being officially designated a public park, the site's fortunes rose and fell with the times. A brilliant restoration in the 1990s transformed the space into the beautiful midtown oasis it is today. The park's March hours vary throughout the month, so be sure to check the website before visiting.

One can see everyone from tourists, families with kids, groups of youngsters, as well as couples having a good time at the rink, with skating lessons being offered here as well.

The Ice Rink at Rockefeller Center has been a regular New York tourist fixture since its inception in 1936. Even though it is one of the most popular ice skating rinks of the city, it is actually quite small compared to many other rinks. During the holidays, the rink can become a bit crowded, but skating under the great Christmas tree is a once in a lifetime experience. Nonetheless, if you're here just to enjoy the lively ambiance and indulge in some people watching, the mezzanine above the rink is a nice, second option.

In the midst of the bustle, noise and pollution of Turtle Bay, the Tudor City Greens provide an oasis of peace. Located on either side of East 42nd Street and under the first multi-building residential complex in the world, these not-for-profit greens are run under the auspices of Tudor City itself. Stroll down the cobblestone paths on a summer lazy afternoon, watching flowers bloom or enjoy an al fresco lunch break on one of the bistro-style chairs which are strategically placed all around the park. When you are done, don't forget to visit Ralph Bunche Park and take the Sharansky Steps to the United Nations across 1st Avenue.

Grand Army Plaza is one of two historic NYC sites that pay homage to the Union Soldiers who fought in the Civil War (1861-65). After the war, this fraternal organization began as the Grand Army of the Republic and it was the forerunner to many veteran's groups in the present-day. This plaza located at the southeastern end of Central Park features a magnificent gilded statue of William Tecumseh Sherman, the war general who is most known for his sack and burning of Atlanta. In front of Sherman, the goddess Victory leads him upon his horse. On the other end of the plaza, a beautiful fountain with the goddess Pomona is hidden from the tumult of 5th Avenue and it provides a fleeting moment of peace in the urban jungle. The other Grand Army Plaza is located in Brooklyn, adjacent to another spectacular space, Prospect Park.
