New skating rink to open at World Financial Center in November

The new Rink at Brookfield Place at the North Marina in Battery Park City will bring a much-needed (and likely permanent) winter sports spot to downtown.

Skaters, rejoice! We've already reported that two rinks are coming to Brooklyn in the coming months (an ice-skating/roller-skating combo in Prospect Park and a roller rink in Brooklyn Bridge Park), and now we've learned that an ice-skating rink is set to arrive in Battery Park City next month as well. The Rink at Brookfield Place, as the facility will be known, will be located on the plaza between the World Financial Center Winter Garden and the North Cove Marina, and at 7,350 square feet, it'll be even bigger than the Rink at Rockefeller Center. Manhattan Youth and Asphalt Green will be offering learn-to-skate and ice-hockey lessons too, in case your crew's in need of a little coaching. Quite honestly: We can't wait!
