07 Oct Already? Ice Skating in NYC Will Kick Off This Weekend
Barely a month into autumn—daylight savings time doesn’t even end for another three weeks!—but already, the city’s ice-skating rinks are opening to the public. The Ice Rink at Rockefeller Center will be the first to welcome the spinning, skating masses, with the city’s other popular rinks—Bryant Park, Central Park—opening soon after. (The ones at South Street Seaport and Prospect Park at least have the decency to wait until November before they lay their ice down.)
Thanks to the advances in technology, it doesn’t need to be, well, icy, to skate; and thus, it’s possible to get the season going earlier every year. But is it too soon?
