Downtown on Ice

The Pershing Square Ice Rink is back and open. Every day from now until January 16th you can blade your way around the rink for $6 per hour long session.

One thing I'd love to see next year is some sort of a residents' package, where you can show proof that you live Downtown and buy a pass good for the entire run. You could still have the skate rental price separate, but I think that would encourage Downtown's growing population to make more use of the ice. I know I went last year and had fun, but that stuff adds up pretty quickly. And, as you can see in the photo, there are plenty of times where the crowd isn't all that large.

Ok, to be fair it did just open today and it was mid-day.
