Improvements to Winter Village

At Bryant Park, we're constantly looking for ways to improve the experience of each and every one of our visitors. This means that each year we add a couple new features, activities, and events to shake things up a bit and make the Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park that much more exciting and inviting for everyone. What's new to Winter Village this year you ask? Keep reading to find out.

Skate Aids
An exciting addition to Winter Village this year are skate aids - shaped like penguins! Skate aids are perfect for the younger skaters among us who may need a little extra support while they're on the ice. Although they have not yet arrived in the park this season, they will soon. When they do, we'll update our Facebook and Twitter with the news of their arrival.

Dasher Boards
If you have visited the park while it's dark out (which is getting earlier and earlier nowadays), you've most likely noticed the LED dasher boards surrounding the rink. In addition to providing support for shaky skaters, this years dasher boards provide a wonderful glow around The Rink, illuminating skaters and on-lookers alike. For more information about the new and improved dasher boards, see our recent blog post on the subject.

We've installed and new and improved webcam to allow everyone to partake in the magic that is Winter Village. Whether you're not in NYC, it's just too cold to go out, or you want to check if The Rink is crowded, the webcam is the perfect way to bring Bryant Park into your home!

Wayfinding Signs
There's a lot going on at Winter Village, so we developed a new wayfinding sign system to make your trip around the park that much easier. Our in-house design department worked on creating signage to make navigating the Holiday Shops and the rest of the park a breeze. Next time you're in the park, make sure to keep an eye out for these handy signs located on the corner of some Holiday Shops kiosks. You can also check out the interactive online map of Winter Village here.
