Photographer's Note

Rockefeller center has transformed again for the summer. In past years there has been a full-service caf, and picnic tables for casual dining, in the space where the ice skating rink sits during the winter months. Now, for the first time since a short season in 1940, the Rockefeller Center rink has turned into an old-school roller skating rink, complete with disco music. The rink is based on Flipper's Roller Boogie Palace, a legendary Los Angeles hotspot from the late 1970s to the early 1980s.

The roller skating space is a bit smaller than the ice skating rink, because there are tables around the perimeter, where you can sit and watch the skaters. I personally like how the sides of the rink on both the outside and inside are mirrors.

This shot was taken from inside the concourse, below street level. It抯 just a casual view of people sitting next to the rink, with the famous, golden statue of Prometheus on the right.

In the WS are two other views. I considered all three photos for the main post. Obviously the quality of the WS photos worsened when I resized them. They looked a lot better with the original, higher resolution
