NYC is no stranger to ice rinks—especially this time of year! We’ve got tons scattered across the five boroughs, from the famous Rink at Rockefeller Center to the city’s only rooftop ice rink at The William Vale, but the Edge is taking ice skating one step further…or shall we say higher.
Now officially open, New Yorkers can glide across a 1,024-square-foot Glice® rink at Edge. The massive skating rink, known as ‘Sky Skate’ is located in the indoor section of the Edge’s sky deck. Visitors can skate across the skyline as the enormous glass windows will provide a panoramic view of the entire city.
The synthetic ice is made from zero-energy ecological Glice®, making Sky Skate the perfect activity for any weather!
Skaters can reserve 30-minute intervals on the rink everyday from 10am to 10pm. We recommend going around 4pm-5pm to catch an unparalleled view of the sunset!
Your ticket to Sky Skate includes skate rentals and access to the outdoor sky deck. So after working on your axel and toe loop jump 😉 you’ll be able to cool off outside on the 1,131 foot deck that extends 65 feet out from 30 Hudson Yards. Walk across the glass floor if you dare and see NYC from 100 stories up. Want to go even higher? Climb the skyline steps at Edge and be positioned on the 101st floor!
Plus, Sky Skate presented by Dunkin Awards recently announced a lineup of themed nights heading to the indoor portion of Edge, including:
- Thursday, February 23rd – Broadway Themed Skate
- Friday, February 24th – 50th Anniversary of Hip Hop Night
- Thursday, March 9th – Oscar Winning Music Skate Night
- Friday, March 10th – Pop Stars Night
To make the most out of your visit, don’t forget to stop for a drink and a bite to eat at the luxurious dining experience, Peak.
The 10,000-square-foot restaurant and bar is situated on the 100th floor serving up modern American cuisine. Grab a spot at the 45-seat cocktail bar and sip on drinks like the “Rhubarb Twist” with Champagne, Fresh Rhubarb Cordial or the “Gold Coast,” with Greenhook Ginsmiths Gin, ALB vodka, Lillet and Golden Olive.
