NEW YORK, N.Y. - An empty armoury is set to become what's being billed as the world's largest indoor ice skating centre, Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced Monday in his latest bid to expand the Big Apple's claim on superlatives.

A block-long brick castle of a building in a working-class Bronx neighbourhood, the Kingsbridge Armory would become a $275 million suite of nine ice rinks, under a plan backed by former New York Rangers star Mark Messier and figure skating Olympic gold medallist Sarah Hughes.
