Prospect Park Update: The Iceman Cometh Not (This Week)

The weather interfered with the opening of the Wollman Rink in Prospect Park last year and it appears to be up to the same tricks again this year. We got an email from the Prospect Park Alliance sayind that "Due to weather conditions which have hampered the ice making process, the opening of the Wollman Rink is delayed." The rink was supposed to open tomorrow (11/21). The Prospect Park website will have more info on the opening. (We posted the schedule info last week for when it does open.) In the meantime, you can "experience winter on a Flatbush Farm" at the Lefferts Historic House on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, November 23 – 25 from 1 – 4 p.m. each day. Our email says:
Get ready for winter as they did in the 19th century farming village of Flatbush. Kids learn how to make candles, start a patchwork quilt, and prepare old-fashioned food. Visit with the Spinster as she spins flax into thread, and enjoy Dutch treats made from an 18th century Lefferts family recipe. There’s even a special appearance by St. Nicholas on horseback on Nov. 25 @ 3 p.m. Lefferts Historic House is located at the Children's Corner, inside the Park’s Willink entrance, at the intersection of Flatbush Avenue and Empire Boulevard.
More info about activities in Prospect Park is always available at the park's website.

Um, they have an ice skating rink at Bryant Park open and the Rockefeller rink is open. They managed to make ice somehow...

Sometimes I really wonder about the people running Prospect Park.
