Open for the season.
located on 50th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues in Manhattan.
Nicely decorated - bring your camera.
The ice here is nice and the least crowded time to skate here is
before November or after January 15th.
Don't get us wrong, though -
it is wonderful to skate here while the Christmas tree is lit -
but it will be very busy here at that time.
Parking is difficult anywhere near this popular tourist attraction so it's best
to use public transportation to get here.
There aren't any coin lockers but
there is a coat check station.
Skate rental is available.
