If you're a frequent reader of this blog, you may have noticed that we love numbers. We count the number of people in the park twice a day, the days the lawn is open to the public, and the amount of chairs at any given time in circulation. Given that information, it probably won't come as a surprise that we also keep track of the ice skaters at Citi Pond.
As of February 5, Bryant Park's ice rink had been visited by a record 222,040 skaters. Almost 20,000 more than the numbers we recorded by February 5 last year. We are thrilled to have hosted so many visitors at New York City's only free admission rink!
