As someone who has skated at this rink and been involved in competitive skating from many aspects I can say that they did this to themselves. This rink was originally owned by Jay Fienberg and the skaters and staff were treated like family. When the rink changed hands the staff and managemnet treated the skaters very poorly. The front desk staff was downright rude, often treating skaters like criminals who might steal 30 seconds of ice time. The conditions were so poor that as a visitor to the rink recently , I had to have my competitive skates resharpened. The rink was quick to take our money but refused to cut the ice even after 3 hours of busy sessions. What a waste of a facility. The ONLY sad part is the good people there who will loose jobs. As for less business, well that's because all of us left years ago to train at other local rinks for better prices, times, staff , and ice conditions.
