The ice skating rinks are now open! Specifically the one in Bryant Park which is the one most easily accessible from ludlow. Currently, rentals for ice skates are $15 dollars but starting November 20th they raise to $19 dollars, if you have your own skates then it's completely FREE!!!!!!!!!!! It's a super fun way to get some exercise just make sure to wear jeans in case you fall so you don't get any scratches. Take the F or M all the way down to 42nd street and it leaves you right at Bryant Park, it's so convenient theres no reason you shouldn't go! Also if ice skating isn't your thing every year they have the holiday fair with various stores and eateries right in the park so take a look around.
