The partnership between Nordstrom and Wollman Rink was designed to surprise and delight all visitors with memorable holiday-themed offerings through Jan. 1, 2023. As a part of the partnership, Nordstrom is sponsoring Nordstrom After School Free Skates, where they will distribute 500 free skates to children and families in the NYC Parks after-school programs.
Additionally, for the holiday season, the rinkside tent at Wollman Rink has been turned into the Nordstrom Chill Lounge.
