Chill NY at the High Line is a promotional event sponsored by Jaguar so after you’re done ice skating inside their massive snow globe, you can also check out some of their posh rides. There will also be “cool” treats available if you really want to get the full brain freeze experience.
While we’re enchanted by how this magical winterscape has popped up in the city, we should point out that the huge coolers being used to keep the ice frozen in the dead of summer are more than just a little wasteful. Hopefully people that do decide to check out the event will at least turn off their own individual air conditioning units for the day to offset the energy used to cool the dome.
You can find Chill NY at the High Line at 17th St. and 10th Ave. and the rink will be open at the following dates and times:
Thursday, 8/16 3pm – 8pm
Friday, 8/17 12pm – 8pm
Saturday, 8/18 12pm – 5pm
