Skating in NYC is pricey, but so obviously worth it. Paid the weekend/holiday rate of $16 for admission + $6 to rent my skates (left mine in Toronto because they wouldn't fit in my suitcase) = $22 total. I do miss the free skating rinks in Toronto. Imagine the uproar if we charged $16 for a public skate???
I always have such fond memories of every visit that I've made to New York. I've been visiting since I was 16 and have this nostalgia for certain places in NYC, having come here during very different stages of my life. I've always felt like such a kid here that it's strange to experience the city as an adult.Explored Central Park a bit more, as I never seem to squeeze it in on my rampage weekend trips into this city. This time around I'll be spending a month here and hope to not have to explore like a crazed tourist. Skating in Central Park is a fun thing to do when visiting in the winter. If you're a big jogger or cyclist, pack your workout gear for all the dedicated trails inside Central Park. It's an easy way to stay active while being a tourist.
Climbed a rock, walked a billion steps in this city to make up for all the non-stop eating we've been doing. I wish I had my pedometer on me, because it would explode here.
