Ok, now it's really time to put away the summer clothes.

One of New York City's most well-known cold weather venues has opened for the season - the skating rink at Rockefeller Center.

The rink opened Saturday, and special programming is planned for Columbus Day on Monday.

Of course, the temperatures aren't quite cooperating.

Temperatures are expected to be in the 70s on Monday.
