The Ice Rink At Rockefeller Center Will Open This Month

It’s hard to believe it’s already that time of year! Don’t let the recent weather fool you, it’s time for the city’s favorite skate rink to make its annual appearance. Here are all the details:

Bring out the Zamboni! Winter is nearing and that means it’s time for NYC’s ice skating rinks to begin opening up for the holiday season ahead. That said, the second of the bunch will be the famous Rink at Rockefeller when it opens Saturday, November 21.

Although the sporadic warm weather has been incredibly confusing, it is officially autumn and we’re finally starting to feel that cool air coming in with temperatures mostly in the 50s over the next week!

Marking the ice skating rink’s 84th anniversary, you’ll be able to officially hit the ice as of November 21 starting at 2 p.m.

They have developed a plan to open safely and complete renovations that support physical distancing, so timed-tickets are now available online for advance purchase.

The rink will be open from 9 a.m. until midnight daily.

Either way, it’s time to bring out the winter wardrobe and dust off those skates! You can find the rink on 5th Avenue between 49th and 50th Streets.
