Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park

Visit Bank of America’s Winter Village in Bryant Park to shop from more than 100 vendors in a Christmas market-like atmosphere. The only difference is these aren’t your typical market stalls — each vendor has a tiny miniature shop to display their goods and wares. Just like a Christmas market, you can find anything you could imagine — gifts ranging from food, décor, pet products, toys, jewelry, accessories and more.
