Where NYC comes to skate!

Due to inclement weather conditions, we will be closed on Saturday, 1/29/2022. Please continue to check our website for updates.

Please be advised that we will be performing a scheduled system upgrade Thursday, September 30th, 2021 at 08:00 PM EDT which will cause a disruption lasting a few hours.
All logged-on users will have their session terminated by the upgrade and will need to log on with your email address on file and click "forgot your password?" to get started.

As this Sunday's Five-Boro Bike Tour will probably disrupt your travel to the rink, please plan ahead as there will be no make-ups due to lateness, missed classes, or practice. Thanks for your understanding

Our Public Session is back on Sunday, 11/7! Pre-registration for admission is required. Skate rental fees will be paid in-house at the main office.

This Sunday, 11/7 clocks fall back at 2:00 am, ending Daylight Savings Time. Also, we are issuing a traffic alert for the NYC Marathon 2021. Please allow extra travel time getting to the rink

The rink is closed from Tuesday, 7/13 7pm to Wednesday, 7/14 12pm because the DEP needs to shut off the water supply in the area. Stay tuned for Wednesday, 7/14 afternoon program.

Please be advised that Tuesday, 8/9, lunch-time open hockey, 5:30 pm Power Skating Class, and 7 pm Edge Class are canceled due to the heatwave.
