Rockefeller Center Ice Skating

Since January is National Skating Month, I want to share some videos and photos from our day of ice skating at Rockefeller Center in Manhattan.

The Rink at Rockefeller Center was constructed in 1936, after Nelson Rockefeller found a new system that created artificial outdoor ice skating. It was an immediate tourist attraction and has become one of the most famous ice skating rinks in the world.

  25. Great photos. We went ice skating for our first real date (over 20 years ago now) and it was a complete disaster. I spent the majority of the date on the floor.
