I really truly love winter’s in the city, I have to admit however that until recently I had never ever been to South Street Seaport during the winter. As much as I love the Seaport during the warmer months, the idea of going when it was colder never occured to me. However, just the other day I took a few of my nearest and dearest and headed down there to checkout South Street Seaport’s SEE/CHANGE ice skating rink.
Surprisingly, being at the Seaport was not as cold as I thought it would be. The skating rink was located out in the center of the shopping area, right beside the Christmas tree. You just had to show up, rent or bring skates, pay, and head out to the ice.
They also had a concession stand where you could buy drinks and snack. There were a few couples on ice, plenty of kids, and tons of father/daughter duo’s – they were so adorable!
It was so much fun! We stayed over an hour, between ice skating, Christmas music, and hot cocoa it was what I would call a perfect afternoon. I love being able to do things like this in NYC – it’s such a special experience, and I cannot wait to head back to South Street Seaport!
