6. One Bryant Park
The public space inside One Bryant Park is always a nice stop, with its large, arched sculptural plantings and double height ground floor. Located on the corner of 42nd Street and Sixth Avenue, the LEED Platinum-certified skyscraper also has some hidden secrets thanks to innovations from the Durst Organization: a rooftop bee farm (we’ve visited and even tried the honey!) and you can actually change the colors of the spire. Remember this spot if you find yourself near Times Square and need somewhere to cool off or seek refuge.
Take the B/D/F/M or 7 to Bryant Park.
