Figure skates in NYC??

Hi Everyone,

We are travelling to New York for the first week of December and I want to buy myself a new pair of skates if I can, preferably I want them moulded.

Does anyone know where I can buy good skates in the city? I'm currently on UK passport gold so am doing toe loop and salchow jumps, one foot spins and a short programme so would need skates for this level. Iv progressed quite quickly so my 'beginner' boots, although I adore them, are no longer suitable.

We are staying in the Hells Kitchen Area of the city so anywhere close by that you guys can recommend would be wonderful.

Thank you in advance

You might try the shop at the rink at Chelsea Piers. There was a man there who helped me with a repair some years ago and we discussed new ones and I felt like he really knew his stuff. Unfortunately, don't remember his name, and the staffing there has been erratic when I've gone for sharpening.
