A History of Ice Skating in NYC

January 24, 2018

Central Park housed New York City's first ice skating rink way back in 1858, and it has become a staple of winter life here.

The Museum of the City New York's current exhibit, " New York on Ice: Skating in the City," is an interesting look at the history of the activity in our city, as detailed in this excellent, very detailed article in Hypoallergic. And... Photos!

Together, the objects illustrate how ice skating manifested as commercialized leisure, as fashionable performance, and as a competitive sport.

The exhibit runs through April 15.
