Saturday, the Coleman Skatepark Take Over session went down. Bladers from all over New York City and visiting bladers from Columbia spent the day at the park sessioning all the new obstacles. Thanks to everyone who came out and joined in on the session. Check out all the photos below. Until next time!
The Coleman skatepark aka L.E.S. skatepark is being rebuilt from scratch. All of the older obstacles have been taken out and replaced with newly built cement and metal copping obstacles. The park is rumored to re-open in July with an entirely brand new setup including a projection screen for film screenings.
See the previous article on the 2012 revamp of Coleman skatepark here. Check out all the photos below. Thanks to Theron Chung and Jordan Baez for providing the photos.
“The skate park under the Manhattan Bridge aka Chinatown/LES Skate Park on our block is due for a complete renovation next year! The HAO/Holm Architecture Office won the design bid for the project and the new park will be funded by Architecture for Humanity and a Nike Gamechanger’s grant…the development of the new park that will be known as “Coleman Oval Skate Park.” With the recent loss of the nearby, historic Brooklyn Banks, we feel that this “revamp” is long overdue. In addition to a brand new skate park, the new design includes a dog-run with a view, upgraded baseball field, new playground, an urban gallery (sounds like legal walls), and new board game benches. See the layout plans of the space below:
“New York has more film festivals than any other city in the world. Throughout the summer, independent and established film festivals show screenings under the bridge. Summer concerts includes locals and national bands celebrating the coolest music venue in the city while, on select days, the part and skate park combines to create the Coleman Oval Market for furniture, food and festivities.” This is a great idea but we’re not sure if anyone factored in the constant loud roar of the train overhead during these concerts and screenings” – Klughaus Galley.
Yesterday we got a look at the second LRNY session and today we get a look at what went down during the first session of the summer. This edit is brought to you by the man himself Victor Callender. Check the edit featuring James Perez, Emil Marvin, and many more at the Coleman skatepark, Brooklyn Banks, and marble ledges in downtown Manhattan. Filmed and edited by Victor Callender.
Jonseph Gomez created this edit from the first LRNY session of the year. The edit features Stanley Hernandez, Hector Rodriguez, William Jorge, and more skaters. “First Let’s Roll NY sesh of the year, can’t miss things like this people! lol. Anyways, Me and some friends got together and made a little edit for viewing. Hope you enjoy” – Jonseph Gomez.
Word is that Killgore and one or two of the Denial team riders will be in attendance today along with Joey G of Casualty and hopefully some of our local big names. Today is such a beautiful day so lets not waste it and come out to the first Lets Roll NY session of the year! 1:00PM at Coleman (LES) Skatepark. Take the F train to East Broadway and head towards the end of the Manhattan Bridge where you’ll see the entrance to the skatepark. You can also take the D train to Grand Street and follow the street signs to the Manhattan Bridge. Be there!
This Saturday, March 20th, Victor Callender and Wheels in Motion will be throwing the first Lets Roll NY session of the year. The first session will take place at Coleman Skatepark aka the LES skatepark at 1:00PM followed by the south banks and water street. Take the F train to East Broadway and head towards the end of the bridge where you’ll see the entrance to the skatepark.
Before we got hit with all this rain Shardy Nieves met up with a few locals and filmed a few sessions at various skateparks around our city. “My homey Jared (Fetus) came out to stay with me for a week from the corn fields of Iowa to the mean streets of NYC. We took him out for a good Ol NYC Skate session before he bounced… Fun skating but more importantly we had a great time doin what we love. Check it out” – Shardy Nieves.
