The rink is open for the season!
Each winter at Rockefeller Center, visitors lace up their skates and swirl away at The Rink at Rockefeller Center. Here you’ll find New Yorkers and city visitors alike swirling and twirling, with the bustling crowds and sparkling lights as a unique urban backdrop. And with room for only 150 skaters at a time, it is as intimate an experience as it is incredible.
Rockefeller Center in partnership with Art Production Fund will present a series of public art interventions throughout the center. Taking place in unique and unexpected locations, the multidisciplinary program will showcase installations inspired by the New York City landscape and contemporary life.
