Skate Through Winter

In any season, Bryant Park is one of our favorite places in the Big Apple – but this winter, it’s an extra-special excursion. Whether you’re an ace on the ice or a newbie to skating, be sure to drop by the Bank of America Winter Village – just a stone’s throw from our Times Square hotel – for a few free spins at The Rink, New York’s only free skating rink. Lessons, skate sharpening and – oh – piping hot cups of cocoa are all available in the Village. Even if you’re not up for carving figure 8’s on the ice, you can still enjoy the show: grab a seat at the glass-enclosed Celsius for lunch, dinner or drinks with a rinkside view. The Winter Village is open now through March 2, 2014 when (we hope) spring announces an early arrival.
