New York City Holiday Ice Skating

Ice skating is a seasonal tradition for New Yorkers and the city’s visitors. The skating rinks typically run from mid-October through March (weather dependent), or you can head to Chelsea Piers or the City Ice Pavilion on Long Island for year-round indoor skating. While Rockefeller Center is the most famous rink, it is also the busiest (and actually quite small), so take a look at our list and find the venue that most appeals to you. Skating at Bryant Park is free; or if you would enjoy Central Park, there are two options - Laser Rink or Wollman Rink.
