Brooklyn got a bunch of new skating rinks this season, but none quite as expansive nor thrilling at its latest: the sheet of ice that’s currently on every sidewalk, street and tree.

No? Okay, well, here they are anyway: the best icy Instagrams from this morning, guaranteed to solve all your weather-related psychological trauma.
