The Rink at Rockefeller Center

Rockefeller Center, NYC
Photo by myself at Rockefeller Center, around 50th Street and 5th Avenue.

If you're interested in skating in New York, you'll have to act quickly! The open air skating rink is open until April 19th this year.

Other rinks in the city include Central Park (outdoors on the Pond), Chelsea Piers (indoors), Bryant Park (outdoors), The Museum of Natural History (outdoors) and South Street Seaport (outdoors).

The rink at Rock Center even offers a special package for those wanting to propose marriage. For a fee, you have ice time all to yourselves, a song of your choice is played on the intercom, and you and your fiance are given a champagne toast.

Alas, it's the end of another week.

TGIF everyone!

Interesting how it's always crowded. Didn't know it was a popular place to propose. How nice for the couples. Happy weekend.

TGIF, indeed!
I took off today to prepare for Easter and have been so fried from work that I've been smiling from ear-to-ear since I woke up!

Enjoy the weekend!

I spent 3 hours waiting on line to skate for less than an hour in December. Prospect Park is good enough for me.

Thanks Olivier!
I know you prefer Bryant Park, which seems much more European.

Hi Paz
Ha, yes, I think the place is crowded. I'm not sure why. Because it's well known?

There are a lot of swanky stores in the area, too.

Have a great weekend, Spandrel!
Take it easy. It seems like everyone is fried to some degree. The stress gets to you, though if you're smiling I guess it's a good thing?

Hi Chicken
I will definitely check out your blog post. We've yet to skate in Prospect Park. I don't even know where the rink is!
