Note that this is the OLD RINK at the South Street Seaport - last existing in 1999. See our page about the new rink at the South Street Seaport.
It doesn't seem like the rink will re-open.
Outdoors - Located at the South Street Seaport, on the "boards" between the mall and the ships. The rink is back this season and it looks much like it did last year (small, kind of oval-shaped). There are still no lockers, and no coat check. People just leave their stuff under the benches, or give it to someone to hold, while skating. At lunchtime on a weekday, the rink was practically empty.
The schedule is organized into 2-hour long sessions.
Monday through Friday sessions are as follows:
10:00-noon, 12:15-2:15, 2:30-4:30, 4:45-6:45, 7:00-9:00.
On Saturday, the last session is from 8:00-10:00.
On Sunday, the last session is from 3:00-6:00.
