When New Yorkers think of Coney Island, they think of the summer — the beach, the boardwalk, the rides — but now the city has plans to attract visitors to the area during the winter too.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg gave a sneak peak of the city's plans for re-developing Coney Island last week, and now it has been confirmed that those plans include a 40,000 square foot skating rink that would be bigger than Wollman Rink in Central Park.

The rink would be built at the base of the Wonder Wheel and will be converted into a sailing pond in the summer. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
