As the days grow shorter and the nights get colder, your first instinct may be to retreat into semi-hibernation, preferably with a mug of something hot in hand. Don’t let the cold spoil all your fun – get out there and enjoy one of New York City’s best winter activities. Be it with your significant other, your adventurous friends or solo, we’ve rounded up our picks for the best ice skating rinks in NYC.
The LeFrank Center has it all. Recently rebuilt and designed by Frederick Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, the complex houses both indoor and covered seasonal ice skating rinks, a well planned café situated rink-side, and a breathtaking view of the Prospect Park Lake from the green roof. This rink is great for kids and large groups as there’s plenty of room to spread out, while the sleek, modern architecture and seasonal fare at the café offer a more refined edge to your skating experience. The best time to go is early evening, since there are no high rises to block the golden light, meaning that this rink transforms into a gorgeous winter wonderland.
