Re: Roller rinks

I was up in Chicago over Thanksgiving and visited the former site of Madison Gardens Rink and the neighborhood. I see that the site is now occupied by Johnny's IceHouse West...a hockey training rink and serves as the primary Chicago Blackhawk training center.
I would be interested in rink floor size of those old-time chicago rinks. I assume Roller Bowl and Arcadia were huge while a rink like Madison Gardens was middle of the road.
Anyone have a feel for that topic?
