Brooklyn ice rinks operating
with restrictions amid pandemic
Industry City’s ice skating rink returns this year with a larger space which allows for greater
social distancing. f Industry City
BY JESSICA PARKS
The coronavirus outbreak may be
cancelling a majority of New Yorkers’
holiday plans, but Brooklynites can still
show off their best fi gure eights this
winter at one of the borough’s many reimagined
ice skating rinks. While some
annual holiday events have been cancelled
to limit the spread of COVID-19,
some local staples’ takes on ice rinks are
shifting operations for safe and social
distanced activities such as skating.
Don’t forget to make a reservation in
advance before making the trek to hop
on the ice.
Ice or disco?
Sunset Park’s Industry City is offering
not one but two distinct skating
options throughout the winter season:
outdoor ice skating and an indoor roller
rink. This year’s ice skating rink, notably
larger than last year, is decked
out with holiday decor and an outdoor
heating system to keep skaters toasty
— while keeping socially distant with
a limited number of other people on the
ice. Lola’s Dreamland Roller Rink will
also return to the megacomplex’s factory
fl oor through March 2021 — pending
any forthcoming city or state mandated
shutdowns — full of holiday fun,
themed parties and a roller disco brunch
