What to Do at the Bryant Park Winter Village?
Bryant Park's Winter Village is set against the backdrop of the New York Public Library and Midtown's iconic skyscrapers, creating a picturesque scene that could rival any holiday postcard. The park is beautifully adorned with thousands of twinkling lights, and a large Christmas tree stands tall at the center.
Shopping is the main event, with dozens of local artisans selling everything from unique Christmas ornaments to one-of-a-kind jewelry to handmade candles and more. There's also a world-class selection of food vendors, so grab a waffle, hot cider, loaded fries, or New York slice and grab a table while you people-watch.
The centerpiece of Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park is the 17,000-square-foot ice rink. Admission is free—just pay for skates! It will also feature a variety of events and skating shows throughout the season, so if you're not one for skating, you can grab a holiday cocktail from the lodge and sit back and watch the skaters.
If you're looking for something a little quieter, Bryant Park is bringing back its popular Igloos and Curling Cafe. You can book private reservations all season long, and packages include dinner and drinks at the Igloos or a curling session, plus a carafe of hot cocoa at the Curling Cafe.
