There aren’t many places in New York City where you can channel your inner 13-year-old while roller skating under disco lights to “Dancing Queen.”
Star, a vegan yogi, has a huge presence in Coney Island, where she sells her t-shirt and souvenir designs and operated her first roller rink, on the boardwalk in the historic Child’s Building, from 2008 to 2010. (She’s also been a huge force in preserving Coney’s historic character.)
Prospect Park’s open-air rink is open daily for roller skating, but on Friday nights, Star takes over, hosting themed skate parties. Think Ziggy Stardust, Saturday Night Fever, or Livin’ on a Prayer.
This may warrant also tapping your 13-year-old style sense. As in, the more sparkle, the better. —Jamie McKillop
