After the Halloween candy coma subsides, New York City jumps head-first into the Holiday spirit. Once the lights go up and the jingles begin, there seem to be shopping opportunities everywhere you look. A few blocks away from The Skylark you’ll find the annual Bryant Park Winter Village, the park transforming into a a Christmas spectacular featuring a 17,000-square-foot ice-skating rink and more than 170 shopping kiosks and food vendors. You’re bound to find a gift for that someone special on your list, or simply spend an afternoon shopping and snacking as a treat to yourself. It’s officially the most wonderful time of the year — make sure to head over before the market closes on January 2nd.
