Ice Skating in NYC

November 11, 2008


When thinking of ice skating in the wide open air of New York City, people usually conjure up images of Rockefeller Center. But I’ll let you in on a secret. You can ice skate for FREE (with your own skates, $12 for rentals), right behind the New York Public Library, at The Pond at Bryant Park, and you won’t even have to fight off the crowds. You still get the magic of skating in the heart of NYC, and have more room to do your fanciful figure-eights.

On most weekday mornings, you can watch a charming man making the rounds in speed skates, looking like he’s going twice as fast as he actually is. If he doesn’t get your holiday spirit going, nothing will.

For more information on ice skating at Bryant Park, you can go here.

There are other options for ice skating in NYC as well. Enjoy!
