THE BRONX - The recent burst of warm weather has dissuaded many from visiting spots for winter fun around the borough.

One of those spots is the Van Cortlandt Park Ice Skating Rink, which is now scheduled to close early for the season, according to a spokesperson. They say the heavy rainfall last week is to blame for the early closure.

Local ice skaters say they are disappointed by the decision.
