The Plaza Rink
Today, that sign comes down.
After being closed for several years (due to State budget problems), the ice skating rink on the Empire State Plaza will open again today.
I don't skate. Well, I don't skate well. Last time I tried, I spent the entire time clinging to a rink's wall in desperation. But the Plaza rink has been a familiar sight since childhood and I'm glad to see it open again.
Skating is free, skate rentals are about $4.00. Which isn't a bad deal at all.
