Like to ice skate? There are 3 rinks in Manhattan. The two outdoor rinks, both in Central Park, are Lasker Rink and Wollman Rink. Of course, they’re only available for skating in the winter months, usually starting in November. Both have lessons and hockey available. Chelsea Piers Sky Rink offers year round public skate, as well as lesson and hockey.
