Skaters take to Rockefeller Center for opening of iconic ice rink


NEW YORK CITY, Fla. (WFLA) — It’s that time of year again where ice skaters pay a visit to New York’s Rockefeller Center to pass some time on the ice.

The center opened up The Rink Saturday to help usher in the holiday season as it approaches for the Big Apple.

The Rink has operated yearly since Christmas 1936, when it began as a way to attract shoppers to high-end stores nearby during the Great Depression, according to the Rockefeller Center.

While it was originally meant to be temporary, it’s now become an integral part of the NYC Christmas experience.

To get tickets to skate on The Rink, just visit the attraction’s website.
