A new ice-skating rink is coming to South Street Seaport

The downtown district, which is still recovering from the aftereffects of Hurricane Sandy, is getting an ice palace on November 29—just in time for the holidays

Ice-skating mania is a real thing this winter: There are new rinks scheduled to open in Prospect Park and McCarren Park, and skating has already begun at the iconic Rink at Rockefeller Center. Never one to be outdone, South Street Seaport recently announced it will be launching a new ice-skating rink just in time for the holiday season.

This isn't the area's first dalliance with an ice-skating rink: Seaport Ice ran for one season in 2009, and shuttered after a few months. The new rink is set to open on November 29, and the neighborhood's annual tree lighting will happen on the same evening. It will be located at Fulton and Front Streets. Not much else has been announced beyond that, but we'll keep you posted as more details emerge.
