The Winter Village at Bryant Park is presented by Bank of America and is a New York tradition for locals and tourists alike. The shops in the alleyways inside the park are housed in custom-designed, “jewel box” kiosks. Visitors can enjoy local crafts, artisan provisions, and exquisite gifts from around the world.
You can buy unique gifts for the holidays at over 180 stores that are setup in the village including gorgeous tree ornaments, cozy sweaters and scarves, leather goods and unique custom jewelry collections.
The market also has some of great holiday treats to snack on ranging from savory food like Raclette at Baked Cheese Haus and The Truffleist Cheesesteak to sweet treats at Chocolate Works and creative donut recipes at Doughnuttery.
One of the most beloved traditions at Bryant Park is the 17,000 square foot ice skating rink that is free to use if you bring your own skates. The rink is setup with beautiful views of the entire part right in front of the giant Christmas tree adorned with colorful ornaments.
Visitors can also enjoy The Lodge—a covered, outdoor après-themed area where visitors can grab a festive cocktail, enjoy delicious food, watch the ice skaters or admire the tree decorated for the Christmas season.
The Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park has also recently been named the best Christmas market in the world for 2023 in a study from Planet Cruise, unveiling the top must-visit Christmas Markets from across the world. It’s the second year Bryant Park has been the top market.
The winter village is open until March 3, 2024 so you can visit all winter long.
