Skate → where
the city
the stars. S+4

A winter tradition. With a downtown twist. The Ice Rink has returned to the Seaport for a season of winter festivities and complimentary skating along the East River.

Skyline views continue to set the Ice Rink apart, and this year skaters can also take in the celestial sights of Aurora, an overheard light installation designed by Ithaca Studio.

The Ice Rink is open daily. Rink admission is free, with skate rentals available for cost. Our neighbors and Seaport Insiders have the opportunity to receive a discount offer.*

Located at Seaport Square between Piers 16 & 17.

DO NOT book the “Rink Admission ONLY” ticket if you need to rent skates. You MUST book a “Rink Admission + Skate Rental” ticket, otherwise you may be subject to an additional fee onsite, on top of the existing skate rental fee.

Witness the northern lights, downtown

Skate beneath the Northern Lights right here at the Seaport. Aurora, an overheard light installation designed by Ithaca Studio, brings the magic of the Northern Lights to the Ice Rink. More than 4,000 individually controlled overhead lights will emulate the star-lit sky so skaters can sail on ice beneath a close-to-lifelike Aurora Borealis. Color and light shows, complete with shooting stars, will be set to music, and each month the Aurora will feature a unique theme.
