View of the lake next to Lasker Rink.  Mini iceberg in the foreground!!

Last week I went up to the top of Central Park for the first time to go ice skating at Lasker Rink.  Typically I go to Bryant Park to ice skate because it is free if you have ice skates (which I do), but the line is always so long on the weekends with the Times Square/Holiday Market crowds.  Especially since last weekend was a holiday weekend it was worse.  Decided to try Lasker Rink instead.  It’s one of the 2 outdoor ice rinks in Central Park–the other being the more famous Wollman rink that you see in movies all the time.  Lasker is cheaper than Wollman and definitely less crowded than Bryant Park.  Definitely a lot more fun to skate when you don’t feel like you are trapped in a sardine can.  Now that I’ve tried ice skating at Rockefeller Center, Bryant Park, and Lasker Rink, I guess Wollman is the last one I need to try of outdoor ice rinks in Manhattan.

Lasker is right off the 110st stop on the 1,2,3 train
