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.
