I have many, many happy memories of skating, both on Carnegie Lake and at Baker Rink as a member of the Princeton Skating Club. One amazing winter in the 1950s the lake froze so solidly that we could skate, even under the bridges, all the way from the boathouse to the far end of the crew race course! Bonfires were built for warming on the University side of the lake. We took the rouses of hot chocolate and skated for hours on end. That winter is a glorious memory.
