Pier 17 Rooftop Winterland NYC

Start the 2019 rooftop season early! The Rooftop at Pier 17 on Lower Manhattan offers a fantastic Winterland, including NYC’s only outdoor rooftop ice rink, skyline views and warming drinks.

Located in the Seaport District NYC, Pier 17 opened successfully during summer 2018. And while next summer will offer more of the same, that might feel painfully far away. But no need to worry and no need to wait, as the winter season means a magical Winterland up on The Rooftop at Pier 17.

The winter schedule at the rooftop will include curling, broomball, fitness classes and, most importantly, NYC’s only outdoor rooftop ice rink. The ice rink is open daily from December 14th to March 17th. So just put on the warm jacket an skate away to panoramic views of the Brooklyn Bridge, Statue of Liberty, East River, and the Empire State Building.

You can either buy a daily admission ticket for $14-17 or, if you love your skating with a view, a season membership pass for $150 (see link below to purchase). Skates can also be rented if you do not have your own.

Eat & drink

It wouldn't be a rooftop winter wonderland if you could not get cosy with some food and drinks in between the activities. At The Rooftop at Pier 17 the options are multiple. Warm up at the chalet-style Tank, a day-to-night warming hut, bar and restaurant overlooking the Winterland Rink. Here you can enjoy ski lodge-style food and seasonal drinks, like squash soup, flat breads and freshly baked cookies.

For a bit more fine and filling drinks and bites, head over to the R17 rooftop restaurant and lounge. Indulge in inventive New American small plates and order something from the large drink menu, ranging from crafted cocktails to Red Winter Cider on tap and a fine selection of wines and bubbles.
