Our last highlight has gifts for everybody. The hand lotion smells like Christmas trees, while soothing chapped hands.
This year’s Christmas Tree at Bank of America Winter Village comes from a hamlet in the town of Lloyd, NY, about 100 miles north of NYC in Ulster County.
The 90-year-old, 55’ high Norway Spruce is a beauty, with character and charm. Our scouts found it nestled in the back corner of a property that was originally a homestead. The house on the property was built in 1880, and the family’s second generation planted the tree to mark the homestead’s corner.
There’s a lot of history in that tree, and one can imagine a story emanating from each of its long, sweeping branches. The family that donated it wishes to remain anonymous, however we thank them for their generosity.
The tree lighting will be held Tuesday, November 29 at 6pm. A full livestream of the event will also be available to watch from wherever you are at wintewrvillage.org. Join Jessica Vosk, Jelani Remy as they host The Ice Theatre of New York, figure skating in Harlem, Olympic skaters Mirai Nagasu, Polina Edunds, Ryan Bradley, Oona and Gage Brown, fireworks and many more surprises.
If I haven’t show you enough reasons to visit Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park, there is also the old fashion carousel.
Now there is holiday fun.
