Midtown condo building will be first in city with its own rooftop ice-skating rink

The board of the 46-story Atelier tower, on W. 42nd St. between 11th and 12th Aves., plans to install a rink on the terrace, which overlooks the Hudson River to the west and has views of the Empire State Building and Times Square. The building is known for its celebrity residents, who have included Lindsay Lohan, Ricky Martin and Brendan Fraser.

The outdoor lounge on the rooftop terrace of the Atelier building on W. 42nd St. will be transformed into a wrap-around ice rink this winter.

These New Yorkers won’t need to fight the crowds at Rockefeller Center if they want to slap on a pair of ice skates.

The board of a ritzy condo building on W. 42nd St. is planning to install an ice-skating rink on the roof of the property, the first of its kind in the city, board President Dan Neiditch told the Daily News.

Residents of the 46-story Atelier tower, between 11th and 12th Aves., will be able to skip the lines at public rinks this winter in favor of taking to the ice on their very own private terrace, which overlooks the Hudson River to the west and has views of the Empire State Building and Times Square.

'The outside space has always been wasted during the winter,' says Dan Neiditch, president of the condo board.

“The outside space has always been wasted during the winter,” Neiditch said. “Now, you’ll be able to skate around while overlooking the city.”

Well, you won’t. But the wealthy condo owners will.

The building — which also has a tennis court, a basketball court and a swimming pool — is known for its celebrity residents, who have included Lindsay Lohan, Ricky Martin and Brendan Fraser.

A 10-bedroom apartment at the property is on the market for $85 million.

The 3,000-square-foot rink is slated to open Nov. 15 and will remain open through March.

Neiditch said he’s currently trying to persuade Olympic figure skater Gracie Gold to come to the rink’s grand opening, but, so far, it’s no dice.
