Where to Ice Skate in New York City


Yesterday, we posted details on luxury ice skating at the Rink at Rockefeller Center (though we're still not sure what a skating concierge is). Today, Gothamist has a great list of other places to take to the ice throughout New York City.

  • From October 26 through March 3, the Citi Pond at Bryant Park offers free skating daily from 8 a.m. until midnight to anyone with the stamina to wait on the General Admission line. Good to know: A $25 Fast Pass option lets you cut the line.
  • There's no official opening date yet for Trump Wollman Rink in Central Park, but the website indicates the opening is imminent. Hours vary from day-to-day so check the website before you head out.
  • A little bit to the north in Central Park, Lasker Rink opens in November and has two oval rinks, one reserved for high school hockey teams and another for all ages. 
  • Over in Queens, the indoor rink City Ice Pavilion offers some shelter from the great outdoors. Note: The rink hosts a variety of hockey leagues and sports teams so consult this schedule for free skate information.

Keep an eye out for the Standard's ice skating experience, which usually pops up sometime in November, and includes things like Glühwein!
