Downtown Manhattan Pics

December 30, 2008

If you roll in Manhattan you know that the downtown area has a lot of spots that are great for skating at any time during the day. One of the spots that is most popular, due to it’s revival early in the year, are the marble ledges on Wall Street and Water Street. The ledges were skate blocked for a long time but the New York rollers could not resist this almost perfect spot. The ledges are usually skateable at anytime during the weekend. During the week though, we suggest skating this spot after 6pm. Below are some pictures of the ledges provided by Chris Cofer of Evotek Media Group. Thanks Chris.

Friday Night Wall Street Session

December 29, 2008

The Holidays have brought us many gifts. So why not show them off? On December 26th, many Brooklyn locals sported their newly received gifts and finished off their day of rolling with one of New York’s unique skate spots. This particular spot is a 3 stair set that goes down hill and can be hit both ways. Located on Wall Street just about 2 blocks up from NY’s infamous Marble Ledges. We were able to capture a few of the many great tricks that went down that night.
