Roosevelt Rink?

New, 1 comment

Might there soon be a reason to visit Roosevelt Island for something other than gorgeous Manhattan skyline views and creepy abandoned smallpox hospitals? Maybe. Roosevelt Islander reports that the operators of the ice skating rink in Bryant Park have "expressed an interest in setting up a facility on Roosevelt Island." The proposed location is Firemen's Field. Question: During particularly cold stretches, would it be possible to skate to Roosevelt Island, and then directly onto the rink? Because that would be awesome. [RI]
