Vale Rink returns to the rooftop of The William Vale in Williamsburg, Brooklyn for its second Winter season. This year, Vale Rink is New York City’s only rooftop ice rink. Atop the 23rd floor of the hip hotel, skaters can take in amazing views of New York City while gliding around the sustainable rink.

Vale Rink is made with sustainable synthetic ice by Glice, which means it doesn’t need any water or power to stay frozen. You can get the same feeling of ice skating without getting wet when you fall down! To keep visitors safe, capacity has been reduced and guests are required to make reservations for a 50-minute session in advance. You must also wear a mask at all times.
