Hoboken, NJ - Thursday, December 22nd, 2016
The City of Hoboken is hosting the Harlow Winter Village outdoor skating rink this winter, which opened today and will operate through February 28th, 2017.
“I am thrilled to announce that Hoboken will host a pop-up skating rink as a new option for residents and visitors of all ages to get out and have fun this winter,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer. “Along with our newly-built mini-soccer pitches, this facility will further activate our viaduct recreation area and support our growing, vibrant neighborhood in northwest Hoboken. I thank Harlow Hoboken for the generous sponsorship that made this possible.”
The rink is supported by sponsorship from Advance Realty — developer of the recently opened Harlow Hoboken luxury apartment building at 1330 Willow Avenue — and is located under the 14th Street Viaduct between Grand Street and Adams Street.
