A Top Rink in NYC

I went to Citi Pond Ice Rink in Bryant Park a few times during my visit. Although I didn’t actually skate, I still really enjoyed the experience.  The rink is in the center of the park, and there are tables and chairs on the side by all the Holiday Shops at Bryant Park, so you can buy a treat to enjoy or just sit and watch the skaters go by.  This is great for parents who want to keep an eye on their kids, or just anyone who likes people watching, like myself. 

The tables face the NY Library, across the frozen pond.  On the right side of the rink is where the rentals and skating entrance are, and across the way on the left side, resides Celsius, a glass-enclosed restaurant serving lunch, dinner and drinks.  The restaurant looks like a 2-story white tent, with clear window viewing of the rink and the whole park. There is indoor and outdoor seating.

I learned Citi Pond actually has FREE admission, but rentals are $14. There are passes available for frequent skaters, which is great for locals who want to just skate around on their lunch breaks or after work.  It’s so much fun to watch, and I can bet anyone who loves ice skating will enjoy the Citi Pond! This is my favorite rink to visit in New York City.
