Skaters coming to Central Park’s two ice rinks are in for a cold awakening next week– the rinks, which are both managed by the Trump Company, are being shuttered by Municipal government to punish the former president for the fatal Jan. 6 Capitol riot, The Post has learned.
The Trump Organization states its last day of operating the iconic Wollman Rink and the smaller sized Lasker Rink at the park’s northern end will be Sunday.
The rink agreements had actually been set to expire in April, however Mayor de Blasio has relocated to ice Trump out a month early, effective Feb. 26.
The Trump Organization is closing its doors after close of business on Sunday, so it will have time to pack up its possessions– including some 1,700 sets of ice skates– and leave.
” Trump has actually been impeached from running the ice rink,” a de Blasio spokesperson had actually said Jan. 31 in announcing the concession terminations for Wollman Rink, in addition to Lasker Rink, the Central Park Carousel and Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point in the Bronx.
