David Rothberg has given you the best Christmas present.
You don’t even know the man? That makes it even better!
Who doesn’t love an unexpected gift from an absolute stranger? Think of this as the opera singer who belts out Handel’s Messiah on the subway platform on Christmas Eve — a little magic to remind us for a breathless moment that we are all in this together.
Rothberg’s present: three full days of public skating at three rinks in the city’s west end over the holiday. And not just skating, but also cups of hot chocolate and bowls of hot soup, still-warm slices of bread and maybe some gooey macaroni and cheese inside warm rink houses.
