Did you know about Bryant park and Ice skating?
Bryant Park is located behind the New York Public Library on 6th avenue between 40th and 41st street. During the winter there is an ice rink there which is sponsored by Citi Bank.
And, the ice skating is... FREE.
Yes, it's true. There is a charge to rent skates or rent a locker, but that is it.
Today Becky, Kevin and I decided to give it a whirl... or a twirl. Which is something I can actually do on ice skates. We had so much fun. It was a beautiful day in New York and we arrived early enough to avoid the mid day crowds. The ice was perfect and the atmosphere amazing, very different from the skate pond in our town!
I meant to bring a camera, but my older son was able to snap a pic of us with his cell phone-not too bad for a cell photo.
We stayed for a few hours and then made our way home. It felt good to do something we had never done and to be outside on a winter day.
