Think Coney Island is all about cotton candy, roller coasters, and boardwalk strolls in the summer sun? Think again. The Abe Stark Rink is the hidden gem of NYC’s skating scene, with a vast indoor surface for all ages and abilities—from pro skaters who want to escape the city crowds to first-timers who’d rather slip and tumble in private. The rink is mostly booked up by local hockey teams, but the Saturday afternoon public skating session offers some time to get on the ice.
Price: $10 for entry. $5 for skate rentals.
Hours: Saturday from 1:30 to 3:30 pm
