    Free admission to the skating rink if you have your own skating equipment. $15 for skate rentals but it becomes $19 during the peak of the season (Thanksgiving week til New Year's week).

    Free admission, but so crowded on weekends, it's difficult to even skate. Try going on a Monday or Wednesday for more space, especially if you want to teach someone else to skate!

    Fun to break out the skates and do a few laps under the Christmas lights and impressive Bank of America Tower. Be warned: almost as crowded as Times Square.

    Think of the ice like a great battlefield. Your not-so-sure-footed friends are dropping all around you, and all you can do is keep your cool and zig-zag around them, hoping you won't be next!

    Not as big a rink as Wollman, and the views while terrific are not as great. The skating however is free (skate rentals are extra), and before 9:30 the weekend crowds aren't bad.

    SKIP IT. This place is crazy (at least on a Sunday afternoon). The ice was so packed (with lots of falling children) that it was hard to enjoy/even skate...especially if you're an experienced skater.

    Dangerously crowded Saturday evening + rowdy teens with no manners + 98% amateurs = one stretcher rescue/hour. Stick to weekday mornings if you don't want to be traumatized.
