Council gives the OK for Bronx ice skating rink

It's official, the ice is coming to the Bronx.

The City Council approved plans to transform the Kingsbridge Armory into the city's largest indoor ice rink with a 48-1 vote Tuesday.

When the Kingsbridge National Ice Center opens in 2019, it will feature nine rinks that will be open year round, state of the art facilities and seating for 5,000.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg said he would sign the bill into law.
