    The custom 56-by-44 foot rink, made from 3,500 gallons of frozen New York City tap water, will operate seven days a week through the end of February.

    Admission is $15; $10 for kids under 12. Ice skates can be rented for $10 (kids under 12 rent for $8). Skating aids for children are available.

    You'll be able to make it a full fun outing thanks to frosty beer, Sno-Caps candy and other snacks and beverages that will be made available. 

    The TWA Hotel is the latest reimagining of the famous winged TWA terminal at JFK Airport. The terminal came out of its decades-long retirement in May with a new life as a luxury hotel.
