    One of the most beautiful rinks in the city and very family friendly! They even offer skating lessons in the middle of the rink.

    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).

    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.

    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!

    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!

    Often long lines but it moved quickly. The rink is super crowded in the evening. Come in the morning for more space.

    In these freezing temperatures, you can find beauty at the fountain. Be sure to make a visit before things warm up!

    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.

    Free skating (need to rent shoes if you don't own a pair), holiday shops and pretty Christmas tree. Bundle up and enjoy some time out here.

    From late October until the end of February, Bryant Park opens a no-charge skating rink. Don’t get too excited: The admission may be free, but you gotta pay $13 to rent skates (or BYO). Read more

    Almost $50 for two sets of skates and locker (required to put shoes/bags in)... kinda crazy, but def the cheapest ice rink in Midtown!! ha

    Prices at Ice Bites are alright, and the skating experience on the rink is worth the cost (free).

    Go in the evening. The lights are magical, and it's less crowded than Rock Center.

    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.

    Have fun skating or just watching. Plenty of security to keep the crowd on ice under control. Routy behavior is dealt with swiftly.

    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.

    Ice was very wet today even though temps have been cold. I think the cooling system needs an early season tune up

    Can't charge your phone here even if your phone is about to die. They said it will blow up the circuit!. My charger takes in about 50hz that wouldn't blow the circuit.
