Ice Skating in NYC

Seaport Ice
As part of an ongoing effort to shake up the South Street Seaport’s lame-tourist rep, the waterfront is scoring a brand-new rink. The 8,000-square-foot space has the distinction of being the only rink in lower Manhattan (riverfront views!), and with prices to match its newly broke brethren. Plus, it’s in close proximity to the Seaport Chorus Tree and Santa Claus.
When to go: Seven days a week, 12 hours a day (10am–10pm).
