10 year old daughter and I went ice skating for first time. Good value considering there is no time limit. If you are planning on skating for 20 minutes, not so much. View is amazing. Ice is great and resurfaced often. Good mix of locals which was important to me, as it usually means a place is pretty legit. We went when it opened at 10 and basically there was just a handful of other people there. Popular music played over the speakers. Did a lot in NYC but this may have been the highlight. Skip the crowds at Rockefeller and come here. Get there when it opens- beat the crowds.
