NEW YORKS GOLDEN ICE AGE
Join us for an exploration and celebration of New York City's legendary history of figure skating and ice hockey, inspired by the exhibition, New York on Ice: Skating in the City (on view through April 2018.)
The program kicks off with a conversation with two-time figure skating World Medalist and ITNY Honoree, Sonya Klopfer Dunfield and Stan Fischler, resident hockey expert on the MSG Networks. Afterwards, inspired by the intimate skating revues presented at nightclubs around New York City in the 1930s and ‘40s, enjoy an evening of virtuosic skating by the Ice Theatre of New York on their amazing synthetic ice surface -- right inside the Museum’s Rotunda.
Reception to follow with seasonal cocktails. Includes Museum admission
WHEN: Friday, February 23, 2018 at 7:00 P.M.
WHERE: Museum of the City of New York - 1220 Fifth Avenue New York, NY 10029
