Skating through a Fabulous Fall Day

Watch Warm Streak in November

The pleasant stretch of weather landed me in Bryant Park on Wednesday.  I found a battle between sunbathers and ice skaters.  With temperatures in the mid 60s in November - park goers were happily bewildered... eating lunch outdoors, ice skating in short sleeves, and comtemplating paybacks! 

The good new is that in meteorology, while things do seem to balance out, there is no such thing as "paybacks," so no worries about freezing over the weekend to make up for the sunny weather.  But the bad news is that changes are coming.... cloudy today with a chance of showers and cooler temperatures through Friday.

Ultimately there will be plenty of cold to ice skate... so bookmark the places you can skate on your lunch break!

In Manhattan there are three public outdoor ice rinks:

Citi Pond at Bryant Park Bryant Park
Between 40th and 42nd streets & 5th and 6th avenues
Lasker Ice Skating Rink Central Park
Entrance just south of park entrance at 110th Street & Lenox Avenue
Wollman Rink Central Park
Central Park at 63rd Street
