Cutting the Ice at Winterland Rink

Visit Winterland Rink on The Rooftop at Pier 17 for a fun day or evening with friends, family, or a date.

This season, guests are invited to skate the city’s only open-air rooftop ice rink with a dramatic view of the skyline boasting panoramic views of the Brooklyn Bridge, Empire State Building. In its second year, the rink is bigger and better than ever and next to it will be a custom, large-scale mountaintop sculpture, giving the feeling of skating in the Alps in the heart of downtown New York.

Winterland Rink is open seven days a week, and will be offering fun weekly programming including themed playlist skates, special “neighborhood” pricing for the local community, group and private instructional skate classes, guest appearances by a skating Santa, ice princess and much more!

For those who need a break from the cold, pop into The Rooftop’s Warming Hut that provides views of the rink and the Brooklyn Bridge. Seasonal drinks and a bar will also be available.


We were thrilled to be able to ice skate overlooking the Brooklyn Bridge and Hudson River, the views, are spectacular. Not sure which is better, the warming hut or views. We highly recommend Pier 17 as the place to be for outdoor fun! Sydney Wright
