The Rink at Rockefeller Center

49th & 50th St., off Fifth Ave.
New York, NY 10020
Open from roughly October to the beginning of April, the ice-skating rink at Rockefeller Center is one of those New York oddities that's become institution: an ice-skating rink smack in the middle of Midtown Manhattan. The rink can only accomodate 150 skaters at once, yet over a quarter-million visit each year: you do the math for how long you'll have to wait during the holidays. The rates change depending on the week, increasing in price around the holidays. Expect to pay $12-$17 for admission, and $8 for skate rental. Hours: Jan-April Mon-Thu 9am-10:30pm, Fri & Sat 8:30am-midnight, Sun 8:30am-10pm.
