Bryant Park


A Frozen Fountain Means Winter's Here

Cold weather means beautiful ice formations on the park's iconic fountain.


In addition to the winter solstice, the Lowell Fountain did its part to mark the first official day of winter on December 21 by freezing over. Time Out New York took notice, and used an excellent photo of our fabulous frozen fountain to announce that winter was truly here.

The entire park has its own beauty when it’s cold and snow is on the ground. Check out this photo we found on the New York Through the Lens, taken by Vivienne Gucwa.

The Frozen Fountain comes and goes through the long winter, so it’s important that its fans take notice when the opportunity arises. Let’s hope for some cold weather the next week or so – it makes a great background for photo ops at Winter Carnival.
