NEW YORK (AP) -- The Rockefeller Center ice-skating rink is opening in a limited way but on time for the holidays.
The Rockefeller Center website says the iconic, sunken rink in midtown Manhattan is welcoming skaters Saturday afternoon as part of a tradition dating to the 1930s.
The rink is operating at reduced capacity, with skate time limited to 50 minutes. Masks are required as a further pandemic safety measure.
Another seasonal fixture, the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree, went up last weekend and will be lighted Dec. 2.
