Ice Skating at Citi Pond at Bryant Park 2012

Okay so we all know that real famous skating rink with the "extra large" tree. But this one is really just as fabulous, a winter oasis right in New York City. Citi Pond at Bryant Park is a really fun spot for families during the holidays. 
I myself do not skate, as sports were never my strong point, but it is fun to watch others have a go at it. This is a bit more affordable than skating at Rockefeller Center, which is $25 admission fee PLUS $10 for skates rental during the holidays. 
The cool restaurant Celsius is located here as well and you can dine outside if the weather is not too chilly for a real holiday feeling. 

The Bryant Park Hotel is gorgeous in the background 
Oh, and I forgot to add, that they play holiday music too, which really just makes you want to start singing! It is really quite a magical place in this city that I just adore more with each visit! 
After your ice skating gig, you can head over to the Holiday Shops at Bryant Park, to the No Chewing Allowed Truffles, and get some hot chocolate, a box of truffles and be in a chocolate-state-of-consionousness!!

I found your blog Rosemary . . . I did a little searching around on your google + account after you left such a kind comment on my blog! I love ice skating, but at 57 I don't skate anymore. What a great tradition for the holidays in the Northeast! I used to love watching people skate wherever there was a skating ring! So glad to be one of your newest followers!
