I like the pix of the speed skater...check out the long speed skate blades...old guy (my age) looks like he skated competitively...with hi stance and light padding.

Pix very good gives impression of ..speed..

You're right -- I didn't notice the long blades. It's not the blue (I assume) rental skates that almost everyone wore.

He actually reminded me of a similar-looking, close-cropped gray-haired guy I saw ice skating at Rockefeller Plaza a few years ago. But he wasn't speed skating -- he was figure skating by himself. And properly costumed, too, just like the properly-attired speed skater at Bryant Park. I thought the speed skater may be one and the same as the figure skater and so I half-expected him to do a pirouette at some point. He didn't so I guess he's not.
