One should never start with a negative, but let’s be honest: winter is coming to New York City. Soon we’re back to the usual slush-puddle-circumnavigating, radiator-hissing-and-clanking, no-peripheral-vision-with-my-hood-up, omg-this-coatcheck-line-is-insane, four long months of gray, gray, gray. If only there were 50 shades. The French have a word for the cement sky, cement city blur: la grisaille. Saul Bellow writes on the subject, “The gloom is not simply climatic. It is a spiritual force that acts not only on building materials, on walls and rooftops, but also on your character, your opinions and judgments.”
Shake off more than just the winter chills at The Standard, High Line‘s street-side plaza rink—emblazoned with a big red snowflake. The rink’s guaranteed to warm your character and opinion, or your money back.
We have our very own zamboni (for smoother ice), a chiller (for harder, more icy ice, even when it’s warm), an extended roof enclosure with tons of extra heaters, and a layout to separate the skating-line chaos from the drinking/snacking merriment.Visit the Website
