The Rink at Rockefeller Center Plaza: A Promethean City Icon

From the Statue of Liberty to Grand Central Terminal, to the Empire State Building, New York City abounds with iconic landmarks. Just a leisurely four-minute stroll from our hotel, the Rink at Rockefeller Center Plaza is another such landmark, frequently appearing in movies and television shows over the decades. Though you’ve probably seen the rink and the 18-foot golden statue of Prometheus that overlooks it, you might never have noticed the inscription on the wall behind: “Prometheus, Teacher in Every Art, Brought the Fire That Hath Proved to Mortals a Means to Mighty Ends.” This testament to Promethean grandeur perfectly captures the extraordinary creative power that surges through our great city every day. Starting this month, you can enjoy not only the inspirational sight of the noble titan but also the rink itself, which will open to skaters on October 12. Though no reservations are required, you can call ahead to secure one of several exclusive skating packages. For more details, see the official Rink at Rockefeller Center Plaza website here.
