It may only be fall but the winter spirit is alive in New York City. The much anticipated Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park has officially returned to Midtown Manhattan. In its 17th season, the iconic holiday experience will feature its beloved skating rink (the only free admission skating rink in NYC), 170+ Holiday Shop vendors curated by Urbanspace as well as the debut of “The Lodge” an après ski-style escape from the cold anchored by a festive cocktail bar and a luxury Champagne Bollinger bar, along with 12 new and classic restaurant concepts.
