Time Out says

There’s no need to wait until winter to glide across the two full-size rinks at this megacomplex—they’re open year-round for general skating as well as hockey and figure skating. Unlike most indoor ice arenas, this one doesn’t feel like a cave; ample windows afford sweeping views of the Hudson River to the west.

While I find the location of the sky rink at chelsea piers to be rather inconvenient and somewhat annoying, the rink itself is quite nice. It is pretty huge, although when I went, there were a LOT of people. Makes it hard to do your own thing/go fast when there are so many people you are trying to avoid crashing into. Wasn't a fan of people doing whatever they wanted, going backwards/forwards, spins, tricks, etc. made it easy to bump into people and there were many "almost accidents." The ice itself was smooth and I did like that they played music. I wouldn't say it's the best rink in NYC, considering there are cheaper/similar options, but a good one nonetheless if you're in the area.

Love the rink. I recommend getting their early on the weekends since there are the occasional children's birthday parties where the lunch area is filled with kids but they have good facilities and lockers for .75.
