With this being one of the best spots to see amazing views of the Manhattan skyline combined with Brooklyn being well-known for art and leisure, The William Vale offers the best of both worlds. Decorated with contemporary local art, The William Vale is open for the public to explore and enjoy its rooftop attractions, including the eco-friendly rink and relaxing cafe lounge.

Are you ready for Vale Rink’s latest ice technology? This rink is made up of an eco-friendly, synthetic material by Glice that is also temperature tolerant — meaning we can skate whenever! It’s also completely self-sustainable because it doesn’t need power or water to function. The smooth icy feeling stays the same in the middle of the winter to even the beginning of spring.

In addition to the perfect skating conditions and astonishing views of Manhattan, The William Vale invites you to enjoy the cozy atmosphere of its indoor cafe as you take a break from skating. The lounge area is equipped with comfy chairs and fluffy blankets. Refreshing drinks and tasty treats make it perfect for hungry little ones after a skating session. So sit back and order your cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows.
