Custom Kiosks Pop in the Park

Yesterday, you saw in our construction update that the Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park is coming together nicely. Today, we take a look at vendor load-in. Imagine the sound of saws and the smells of paint wafting through the crisp air, as the vendors prepare to open their Holiday Shops. Taking a peak in at the process can be fascinating. You really get a feel for the possibilities that the custom kiosk structures provide - each box is like a three-dimensional blank canvas. Not to mention that the distinct details all come together in less than one week!

Vendors are setting up their inventory, from scarves and hats to custom jewelry, chocolates, and memorable gifts - there are many surprises coming your way.

You'll see some familiar shops returning this year, as well as some new favorites. Irish Gifts will be in their familiar location along 6th Avenue.

Painting the interior of the kiosks helps to define each Holiday Shop's style and theme. Many build custom cabinetry, shelving, and lighting.

The fences along the 40th Street side of the park add a certain "village-like" charm to the #WinterVillage, while protecting the horticultural elements in the park. They are actually placed in locations where the line tends to form when the Rink is at its busiest.

Remeber, the paths are a little crowded, so please be careful when strolling the park. We are doing our best to keep pathways open, safe, and accessible, as we build up to a grand opening this Friday.
