The Rink (Once Known as the Pond) at Bryant Park 2023 – 2024
At the bottom of this page you’ll find a map for this skating venue.
It’s already skating time in New York City! That’s right! As of the time of this writing, still days away from Halloween, folks will have the chance to show up at this midtown location with skates in hand and glide away for free! Yup! As long as you’ve got your own skates then it’s free! Of course, there’ll be rentals available as well. 🙂
Our very first post from years ago: We passed by on a Sunday afternoon for the first time once and oh what a treat to finally see an actual skating rink in midtown Manhattan! We’d encircled the rink a couple of times so’s to get a better perspective and although the rink is a tad bit smaller than New York City’s others it was surely big enough for all to enjoy. So even if you’re not aiming to go skating it might behoove you to pass by just the same if you’re in the area. Official Page
