Central park skating is still a classic though the last time I went I was 10yrs old. It is a sight to see, maybe not the glamour of Rockefeller Center, but it has a slightly more romantic and homey feel in Central Park.
There are locals and families and tourists alike, and of course the requisite kids birthday party.
The worst part is the price and the Trump name and picture all over the place. It's called Wollman Rink and just because Trump owns it doesn't mean it should feel like a giant ad campaign. His face on the bottled water they sell is creepy.
The staff is more intimidating than helpful on the ice, they probably cause more accidents than prevent them, but then again they are just kids who probably make minimum wage working for Donald.
You've got to try it once for the romance but if you really want to skate best go to Chelsea piers.
