Two Central Park ice skating rinks will remain open for the rest of the season following a dispute between the city and the Trump organization, which operates the rinks.
“New York City kids deserve all the time on the ice they can get this year,” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s office said in a statement to media outlets. “The Wollman and Lasker rinks will stay open under current management for the few weeks left in this season.
This comes after the city decided in January to cut ties with Trump’s business. Eric Trump, the executive vice president of the Trump Organization and son of former President Donald Trump, previously criticized de Blasio for shutting down the ice rinks before the end of the skating season, telling the New York Post that “the mayor is absolutely petty.”
