Skate Key in Mott Haven closes its doors for good

A popular Bronx skating rink closed its doors for good Sunday.
A recent shooting at Skate Key in Mott Haven had some community board members calling for it to close. However, some parents say closing the rink is not going to prevent violence in the neighborhood. Others say closing Skate Key will limit the activities available for children.
The owners of the rink say they are tired of defending themselves against community allegations that the rink is responsible for violence.
