With the temperatures continuing to dip at all time lows in New York City, what are Harlemites to do this coming holiday weekend? Well, if you feel like putting on some blades and going round and round in circles on ice, we have the perfect recommendation for you – Trump Lasker Rink in Central Harlem! That’s right! Harlem has their very own outdoor ice skating rink.
Take the 2/3 subway line to 110th Street and you are a few yards away or drive if you like. But this place is a winter wonderland without all the touristy fuss. When we visited the rink recently, the ticket lines were somewhat long to get in, however when you’re in the rink there is plenty of elbow space to move around on and off the ice. Also, if you want to take a rest from skating, you can do what we did…watch the miniature hockey players battle it out in the ice rink next door. Who needs to go to New Jersey to see the Devils. From our pictures here, we clearly have our own Devils to watch and root for in Harlem. Oh and the parents watching their kids…they’re fun to watch too! See you there!
