Ice Skating NYC

Yesterday we walked past Bryant Park, after being too late to see the Macys Thanksgiving Parade (which starts at an unholy 9am), and saw that the ice skating rink was up and running. It was a beautifully mild fall day but the atmosphere felt festive enough to get us ridiiiculously excited about Christmas.

We didn’t get on the ice this time, instead settled around the stone fire pit with a cup of hot spiked apple cider (apple juice, spices and Amaretto).

I can’t wait for ice skating at Central Park myself, especially as the Prospect Kate Wollman rink is closed this winter (noooooo).

Here are a list of the key locations where you can get your skates on in New York city:

  • New York Parks Info (has all the park locations and you can handily search the closest to you)
  • Rockefeller Center (open every day, late weekends. $75 pp!! for express pass but can’t see non-express option, although on other websites it says around $10 adults)
  • Central Park (two locations, north and south end. $6.25 adults)
