How much time would it take to cover Grand Central, NY Public Library, and Bryant Park? If it doesnt take a lot, what else can i add?

Depends on whether you want to just look, take a tour, or explore in depth.

It depends if you intend to take tours of these places or just walk around on your own. The Main Reading Room of the library on the 3rd floor is closed until the Fall, at least, because of loose plaster ornaments. There are other rooms worth seeing there, but this was the main attraction. The Chrysler Building lobby is an Art Deco wonder at Lexington and 42nd St.. Rockefeller Center and St. Patrick's are not so far away

I would do the audio tour at Grand Central, explore a bit, maybe grab a bite?

The NY Public Library has free tours, check the times and see if it works for you:

After that, go sit in Bryant Park and soak up the ambiance.

You can add in some things, but what are you interests? What else are you doing? How many days are you here, etc?

The UN is not far away but you need to check availability of the tour (only way youcan get in) based on what activities they have going on.

Agree that if you stroll up Fifth Ave a few blocks you will get to Rock Center and St Pat's.

The Morgan Library & Museum is a neat museum especially if you like drawing & prints. It also has a light filled café with a nice light lunch menu.

10 days is a nice amount of time. Make a list all the things you want to see and do. Then use google maps and group but area. Once you have a rough draft, post it up and we'll help you out.

June is a great month for weather and long days. Governor's Island will be open and that's a nice way to spend a few hours.
