The annual pop-up village, arguably the top must-see attraction of winter in NYC, opens its doors this Saturday, October 27
Snow might not be in the forecast just yet, but winter is coming to Manhattan early this year! Starting on Saturday, October 27, and running through the New Year (January 2), the annual tradition known as the Winter Village at Bryant Park will set up shop over much of this beloved NYC green. There’s no shortage of festive fun to be had, from seasonal activities such as ice skating to perusing holiday markets consisting of some of the city’s top food and artisan vendors.
Unsure what makes this winter wonderland a “can’t miss” attraction for tourists and locals alike? The Manhattan Club has five reasons why your visit during winter in NYC should include a swing by Bryant Park!
