Better than the Frozen Hot Chocolate at Serendipity
Ice skating on Wollman Rink in Central Park on a sunny winter day is the quintessential New York experience. I admit to wanting to come here because I saw the rink in Serendipity and probably in Love Story as well but I can't remember that movie as well. But the experience surpasses the hollywoodized version of NYC. The views from the ice are beautiful and I couldn't help but smile because I was ice skating in Central Park. The crowd wasn't too overwhelming and the music was actually good - it varied from ACDC to Oasis. Skating here was probably in my top 5 of must dos in NYC.
Thank goodness for friends that were willing to venture out with the crowds on President's Day. We are all decent skaters and none of us fell.
