Close to Home: The Winter Village in Bryant Park
It's beginning to look a lot like loads of holiday fun at Bryant Park where the Bank of America Winter Village lives.
Visitors can shop until they drop underneath the Christmas tree, go ice skating, indulge in gooey holiday treats or cozy up in your own private igloo.
The village will be filled with over 100 local small businesses until Jan. 2, so find the perfect present for those on your list or treat yourself.
The featured ice skating rink, open until 10 p.m., is free for those that bring their own skates. Ice skates are available to rent along with a reservation.
After some exercise, don't miss the small business spotlight near the park's fountain. It's home to rotating minority-owned small businesses like Winsome Apothecary from Queens.
The owner says she's gotten to introduce her products to visitors from all over the world in the Winter Village.
The Winter Village activities - including iceless curling, ice skating and the cozy igloos - are open until March 5.
