Eat, shop, and skate your way through winter in the heart of Bryant Park
Bank of America is giving new meaning to the term “wintry mix” with a combination of ice-skating, dining and shopping in the heart of Midtown—all part of a new sponsorship with Bryant Park. For the next five years, the bank is partnering with Bryant Park Corporation to create the Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park. The venue is free and open to visitors between November 1 and March 2, 2014. Every winter, over 3 million visitors and over 300,000 ice skaters flock to Bryant Park to enjoy the park’s urban pleasures.
The Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park offers free ice-skating (with a charge for rentals) at its 170’ x 100’ rink. In addition, there is a glass-enclosed rink-side restaurant as well as other dining choices and the Holiday Shops at Bryant Park, over 125 specialty retailers in open-air pop-up boutiques. There’s even free Wi-Fi.
The Bank of America Tower is located directly opposite at One Bryant Park, and Bank of America’s nearly 5000 Midtown employees have supported their local park since the tower was built. “There’s no better way to extend our commitment to the cultural vibrancy of New York City than by partnering with our neighbors at Bryant Park to create a world-class winter venue” said Jeff Barker, New York City president, Bank of America. “The Winter Village will provide lasting memories for residents and visitors alike, while helping area businesses thrive.”
The Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park is located at W. 40th and W. 42nd Streets between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, behind the New York Public Library and just a short walk from Times Square and Grand Central Station. Winter Village hours are Sunday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to midnight.
