Ice skating at the Rockefeller Center

I was one of those people who'd stand watching everyone ice skating at the Rockefeller Center, dreaming I was ice skating. The truth was I hadn't went on an ice rink, since I was a child. I thought what if I land myself in hospital, in New York. I'd have no one to visit me in hospital, as all my family are in Scotland. I told my friend every time I go to New York I like setting aims of doing different things and ice skating is something I've wanted to do in New York, but I hadn't been on an iced ink. My friend said go to the Edinburgh ice rink in town and practice, so you have abit more confidence. I went with my niece to the ice rink in town, the day before I went to New York in January. I was surprised I didn't fall once, though I had a few wobbly moments.

While in New York in January, I headed to the ice rink at the Rockefeller Center. I headed down the steps, then went into the room where you pay and collect the ice skates.

It's a different experience skating in New York, by the Rockefeller Center. I loved skating and looking up seeing the Rockefeller Christmas tree. My only disappointment with the ice skating at the Rockefeller Center, is how old the skates look. They were laces and looked gross and soggy, being wet with the water.

It's an amazing experience, I recommend ice skating at the Rockefeller Center.
