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 awe-inspiring Central Park views. If you’re a skating greenhorn yourself, take heart—Wollman Rink is home to the largest learn-to-skate program in the country.
