Bryant Park has their Winter Village (lovely pop up shops) & free summer activities. They have their Art Cart from April-October. For this winter, they have brought back the ice bumper cars. Reservations go very fast. It is a 10 min time limit and it is not free. However, the pop up shops are lovely to look around at.
We tried the ice skating rink, and it was a great deal of fun. A good place to see and be seen. The service is good. They have restrooms you can use while wearing skates. You need a reservation, but the price is free.
