For the first time, Downtown Brooklyn has its own outdoor ice skating rink, bringing winter fun to the plaza at MetroTech.

The Rink At MetroTech Commons offers daily public skating along with ice skating programs for adults and children hosted by Olympians Melissa Gregory and Denis Petukhov. Gregory and Petukhov will offer private lessons, semi-private lessons and birthday parties. The rink will also host corporate skating events and company team building outings.

Families took advantage of the rink this past weekend, whirling around on the ice even in the warm weather.
