Stick n Puck & Skating near Manhatten, New York

Visiting New York this weekend for 3-4 nights and looking for some ice skating and maybe some stick n' puck.

Has anyone tried Lasker or Wollman rinks? I've never played outdoor hockey since I live in Vancouver. I'll probably pick up a stick from Westside Skate&Stick.

Second Q: I might buy a pair of inline hockey skates to do some blading around Central park. Any recommendations on where to get a good deal? And are there any areas where I can play some casual roller hockey?

Cheers!

lasker rink is closed now, so you're best bet is going to be calling up Citi Ice or Aviator and see if they have stick and puck times.

i believe the wollman rink is only for public skating and i think its outdoors and closed by now for the season. you can try chelsea piers but as far as i know its like 25-30 bucks for just open hockey. aviator is in brooklyn. if you have a car, youre better off venturing into lovely new jersey. theres a rink called the ice house, just over the george washington bridge in hackensack, nj.

ice house does not have stick and puck sessions nor does it carry any roller equipment.
the only other option would be palisades center ice in palisades center mall in west nyack, ny across the tappan zee bridge. they have stick/puck sessions on weekends. usually sundays at 2:50 and sometimes saturdays too.

Thanks for the info guys!

I'll be staying near Central Park and won't be renting a car. I called today and Wollman rink is open til April 4th. They have "Pond Hockey" this Tuesday. It's pretty expensive but so is everything else in Manhattan.... I can pay $6-$10 for indoor hockey in Vancouver but I've never experienced outdoor ice hockey!

Citi Ice Pavillion in LIC (off the 7 train) has stick and puck on Friday from 715-820. It's expensive as hell though, $25.
