Winter Wonderland Ice Skating Rink Feedback
It's beginning tomorrow, from 9am to 9pm (with filming around the area, no doubt, so beware if you don't want to be used for promos.) Comments are welcome, pro or con. I'm particularly interested in hearing from those residents who live around Playground 10 and may be affected by any noise coming from the rink.
11/26/11 UPDATE: A STR reader sent in these following photos from today's activities. I've cropped a few and whited out faces.
First off, the important "Filming Taking Place in This Area" notice:
No refunds in case of weather conditions. And don't forget you are skating at your own risk:
Security abounds, but no checking of key cards for "residents and their guests":
More security, on the other of the rink:
This banner will look beautiful in the video promo:
Please tell me they played at least one ABBA song:
Skates, anyone? $7 rental:
OMG, junk food vending machines! I predict these and their brothers are going to find a place in refurbished former trunk rooms once that issue gets settled in favor of CWCapital.
Spiderman trying to get info from penguin about the recent muggings of senior citizens in Stuy "Gramercy Park" Town:
Not to worry. Stuy Town's Public Safety (ie, Security) is on the case:
Councilman Dan Garodnick (in orange shirt and blue tie) performs in front of the crowd at opening day celebrations.... (Oh, just joking, Dan.)
That's it for now. Have a Happy Winter Wonderland!!!
