Chevy Chase ‘Ice Palace’ was at the strip mall on Connecticut near Van Ness Metro. DC’s only indoor ice skating rink from 1938-1950 before WMAL took over the site with its TV studios. http://www.facebook.com/stephen.b.crowley Stephen B. Crowley My mom and dad grew up in the neighborhood – they said that in their teens the place in your photo was a roller rink as well. In the mid-60′s if you lived in the neighborhood and wanted to go ice skating, the Woodley Park Hotel on Connecticut Ave. just a block uptown from Calvert Street had an ice rink as well – we lived up at Connecticut & Tilden and my sister skated there a lot. I believe actually that it was called The Sheraton-Park Hotel at that time.
