If you decide to check out this famed rink, be prepared for hordes of children and slow-moving newbies. There won’t be room for speed skating or fancy tricks, but braving the crowds is worth it for the priceless Central Park scenery. If you’re a skating greenhorn yourself, take heart—Trump Rink is home to the largest learn-to-skate program in the country.

This skating rink is significantly underrated - it's larger than the rink at Rockefeller Center and less crowded than the space at Bryant Park's Winter Village. The prices are reasonable and the food they offer is delicious. It's a perfect NYC date locale - so long as you can get past the big "TRUMP" signs on the rink.
