NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, July 3, 2024 / — Rockefeller Center has announced even more events taking place at Summer at The Rink, where the iconic skating rink has transformed into a community destination that offers Canadian visitors a special season-long slate of opportunities to explore, play, dine, and shop in the heart of New York City. Brand new activations include live performances in partnership with Project 91, a bi-weekly run club with beloved athleisure brand Alo, and a retro arcade pop-up with Barcade.

Artist Angelica Hicks has designed a series of illustrations in celebration of the Summer at The Rink festivities and dining offerings. A custom designed map is available as a postcard keepsake, with illustrations on display throughout campus.

Beyond The Rink, Rockefeller Center continues to provide extraordinary experiences and memories for visitors and the world’s top creatives. No visit to the Center is complete without taking in the more than 100 works of public art hidden in plain sight; experiencing the unparalleled 360-degree views at Top of the Rock Observation Deck; and riding The Beam, an interactive photo experience on the 69th Floor of 30 Rockefeller Plaza that recreates the famous 1932 photograph “Lunch Atop a Skyscraper.”
