Explore Bryant Park’s Winter Village

As the holiday season wraps New York City, residents of 555TEN are perfectly positioned to experience the enchantment of the Bryant Park Winter Village. This transformation brings with it an air of yuletide cheer, making the park a must-visit.

From the end of October until January, the park’s familiar greenery makes way for the Winter Village holiday market, a bustling open-air fair. The seasonal display is home to scores of unique kiosks, filled with creative gift ideas from local artisans and crafters. Explore a diverse range of offerings, including jewelry, accessories, apparel, home decor, and gourmet treats. Standout items include the exclusive seasonal candles from the Bryant Park Shop and whimsical, literary-themed gifts at the New York Public Library’s pop-up.

For those looking to savor some of the local fare, options abound. From the melty goodness of Baked Cheese Haus to the authentic flavors of Bao by Kaya, visitors can indulge in a world tour of tastes. Cheesesteaks by The Truffleist and Crepe Café offer classic American and French treats, respectively. For those craving something savory, Crispy Chick and German Bratwurst are must-visits. Palenque BBQ brings Colombian flavors, and Petisco Brazuca introduces Brazilian tastes. Finally, for the sweet tooth, the Winter Pie Shop provides a perfect endnote.

A visit to Bryant Park’s Winter Village wouldn’t be complete without spending time on the ice. And post-skating, indulge in a warm spiked cider while relaxing in one of the park’s intimately arranged igloos. Kids can partake in cookie decorating while parents sip on craft cocktails from the open-air cocktail bar.

Before your return to 555TEN, take a moment to admire the Bryant Park Christmas Tree. As evening falls, the park transforms into a luminous wonderland. Over a hundred thousand lights twinkle on trees and buildings. Stroll through this urban retreat to find an array of perfect photo opportunities before a quick saunter home, bags in tow.

Holiday Revelry in the City

The holiday season in New York is a time when the city transforms into a dazzling wonderland, and nowhere is this more evident than in Midtown West. The residents of 555TEN are perfectly poised to delve into the festive spirit.

A highlight of the season is the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, an iconic emblem of the holidays in New York City. This year’s tree hails from Vestal, NY (outside Binghamton). Traditionally a Norway spruce, it stands tall in Rockefeller Center, adorned with thousands of twinkling lights, and crowned with a brilliant Swarovski crystal star. It’s a sight that never fails to enchant, year after year.

But that’s a mere launching point. At the Bryant Park Winter Village, explore the free ice-skating rink and a festive market with unique artisanal gifts, perfect for finding that special something beyond the usual fare. Continue the shopping trip up Fifth Avenue, renowned for luxury boutiques and department stores. During the holidays, the shops craft elaborate window displays that are works of art in their own right. Themes range from whimsical fairy tales to high-fashion vignettes, drawing crowds who come to marvel at the creativity and craft.

The Radio City Christmas Spectacular features the world-famous Rockettes. This annual show is a New York tradition, with high-kicking dance routines, stunning costumes, and impressive set designs.

Too staid? Try Santa’s Secret Speakeasy, where themed cocktails and a Prohibition-era vibe provide a singular way to toast the holiday season. It’s a sophisticated, and occasionally edgy, escape from the usual holiday bustle.

At Schrafft’s Pop-Up Restaurant from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” re-live the iconic 1960s film at a pop-up version of the restaurant in Midtown. Enjoy a limited-time menu inspired by the Audrey Hepburn classic for a nostalgic, multi-sensory dining experience.

For those seeking a more bucolic take, a walk through Central Park in the snow offers a picturesque escape from the city’s hustle and bustle. The Park’s pathways and bridges become enchanting scenes straight out of a winter postcard. You’re probably familiar with the Wollman Rink, but also check out the Arthur Ross Pinetum, a verdant spot featuring 17 species of pine trees.

Living in Midtown Manhattan during the holidays offers unparalleled access. The festive vibe, combined with the convenience of being close to some of the city’s most iconic attractions, makes it an iconic time for the residents of 555TEN and their guests. Whether it’s taking in the sights and sounds of the season, attending spectacular shows, or simply enjoying the scenic beauty of New York, there’s no shortage of holiday magic.

Penn Station: A New Experience Awaits

For those residing in Midtown West, the overdue prospect of a reimagined Penn Station brings a wave of excitement, particularly for the residents of 555TEN. This upscale rental property, known for its luxury amenities, is ideally situated just blocks away (while feeling wholly apart from its frenetic pace). The proximity promises to augment the living experience in Midtown West, offering enhanced accessibility and a revitalized neighborhood vibe, complementing the high-end lifestyle at 555TEN.

As a leading candidate in the redesign competition, the vision presented by Hellmuth, Obata + Kassabaum (HOK) and Practice for Architecture and Urbanism (PAU) stands out. Their design features two spacious train halls, each topped with glass ceilings and skylights, aiming to infuse the underground areas with natural light. A proposed facade renovation, designed to echo the Beaux-Arts elegance of Moynihan Train Hall, and the integration of advanced navigation systems are also key highlights of this ambitious plan. These enhancements are geared towards transforming the current station’s wayfinding challenges into a seamless, tech-forward experience.

The plan also includes a new entrance pavilion on Eighth Avenue, promising to elevate both the aesthetic and functional aspects of the area. Additionally, the 33rd Street Farley Building is slated for a modern makeover, featuring new interior finishes and an energy-efficient lighting system.

Another pivotal feature of the Penn Station redesign involves the introduction of culinary and cultural experiences. The nearby Moynihan Train Hall provides a glimpse into this future, already hosting a gourmet food hall with an assortment of dining options like H&H Bagels, Burger Joint, and Blue Bottle Coffee.

Art is expected to play a similarly significant role in the transformation. Planned installations aim to create an environment that goes beyond travel functionality, offering fully immersive cultural experiences. Visitors to the Moynihan Train Hall can already witness this blend of art and transit, with notable works like ‘The Hive’ by Elmgreen & Dragset, Kehinde Wiley’s ‘Go, 2020,’ and Stan Douglas’s ‘Penn Station’s Half Century.’

Residents of 555TEN are uniquely connected to one of New York City’s most significant urban projects—the rejuvenation of Penn Station. Living at 555TEN means being just a short distance from the heart of this evolving project and all the prospective advantages, all while being insulated from the bustle in a lifestyle-friendly oasis.
