“We are ecstatic to bring this fun and innovative offering back for our guests for a second year in a row,” said William van Wassenhove, general manager, M Social Times Square New York. “As the first hotel to offer rooftop curling in New York City last year, we found the activation to be an immense success and knew we had to bring it back for another year. With some new updates and additions to the rink, we expect that the activation will be even more successful in 2023!”
