There are numerous ice skating rinks around New York during the holiday season. The most famous has to be The Rink At Rockefeller Center. It is open from 8:30am to 12am typically (check for specific days) and people tend to spend anywhere from 10-45 mins there at a time. You can reserve your tickets with VIP skate reservations and prices can vary from $60 – $150 per person. If you are looking to skate on a budget, I highly recommend going to Bryant Park and taking advantage of the free ice skating at The Rink open daily from 8am-10pm, October 28 through March 4. If you own your own skates, you can just glide on, but if you are like myself you can rent skates for a reasonable $20 price tag. Central Park hosts two ice skating rinks, The Lasker Rink and Wollman Rink. Prices and times vary between the two but nothing is more romantic than taking someone on a skate in Central park.
