Undeniably, Winter is the best season for some ice skating. Some people, however, just can’t get enough and fortunately for them, there are ice skating rinks open on any season for people in the Big Apple.
Sky Rink at Chelsea Piers
NHL fans will especially know this place. With NHL-sized rinks, people can play hockey as if they were actually competing in a professional league. After all, that is what Chelsea Piers is all about; getting to play sports whatever the season. Young aspiring hockey players can even join their training programs and possibly even their youth leagues.
People can rent skates and equipment if they needed to. Of course, people are allowed to skate leisurely without needing to play. Guests can even hold birthday parties for both kids and adults if they wish to do so. The best part about the Sky Rink is that unlike most indoor rinks, Sky Rink feels more natural.
