Ice-Skating Rinks Open
Ice-skating is synonymous with winter in New York City. Luckily, you don't have to wait until the holidays roll around to enjoy this time-honored tradition. Many of the City's rinks open early in the fall—including Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park and The Rink at Rockefeller Center and Wollman Rink, which all open in October—and others are open year-round, like the Sky Rink at Chelsea Piers, City Ice Pavilion in Queens and Aviator Sports and Events Center in Brooklyn. Taking advantage of the early openings may be wise, as the rinks grow more crowded as the holidays approach.
