This is for NYC skaters! Has anyone ever tried the freeksate at Riverbank State Park in NYC (Harlem)? They just offer it once a week - Thursdays from 8-9. It is $12. I went last week after putting it off for a while and it's INCREDIBLE! The rink is almost completely empty and it's a full size rink.
The only downside is that it's outside, so if it's cold out it's... cold. But otherwise it's amazing. Highly recommended!
