First opening on Christmas day of 1936, the Rockefeller Ice Skating Rink began the most celebrated tradition in New York City. Attracting over a quarter of a million skaters each year, the Rockefeller ice rink is a favorite winter activity for local New Yorkers, NYC visitors, and even celebrities such as Wynona Rider and Richard Gere. Ice skating in NY is most popular during November and December once the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony has taken place.

The first is awesome, Mikkal! I am noticing CA and FLA must have been undecided yet when you took the shot, right? Just how did they color the ice once it is in place?
