    As a tourist you can't bypass skating at the rink, it's an icon! The time is restricted, there're many people queueing. Still I recommend taking the plunge. You're in NY and at the Rockefeller center!

    The construction time of the Rockefeller Center started in 1931 and took 9 years until 1940. Christmas Day 1936 in the ice-skating rink at the Lower Plaza was installed for the first time.

    If you have not skated at the Rink at the Rock then you haven't lived... BTW get there early to avoid the long queues. Saks has good winter shows displayed on the walls opposite too this year (2012)

    The rink just opened today as I leave this comment. If you are here during the winter season, something you need to check out at least once. It is some sight once the tree goes up!

    No place like Rockefeller Center. A bit crowded with tourists, but it a must do if you're in New York- even if it's just once!

    Want to test out that new telephoto lens and your camera's tracking focus abilities? Try it at the Rockefeller Center skating rink. Try using your center focus point and panning with the subject.

    Skating at The Rink is a must do at least once a lifetime in NYC with the iconic Christmas tree and Rockefeller Center as the backdrop.

    Expensive, but awesome! You can buy the Sky Skate ticket (Top of the Rock + Ice Skating) for $48

    Just to watch people skating around during Christmas time in a beautifully decorated place is bliss. Magical Christmas times.

    If you have food with you, the concierge will let you leave it on the ice to keep it cool. Don't forget to tip!

    The most famous of rinks is still as cramped as ever. Unless you plan on going early in the morning or between 9am and noon on Thanksgiving, expect a one- to two-hour wait. Read more

    There is one sign in all of ther plaza that tells you where to go, and it's nowhere near the actual entrance. No security around to give directions either. If you can afford just get express tickets.

    In the winter it's the skating rink, in the warmer months, it's a bar and grill! #Cocktails

    Quite expensive for the value you get. Better walk further and go to Central Park.

    É clichê, e também é um passeio que todos devem fazer - caso estejam em NY durante o inverno. Muito divertido e terapêutico assistir as pessoas patinando no gelo 👏👏👏👏
