On the other side of the spectrum of the extreme/alt/action sports world it seems as if a new skate plaza will be built in Queens, NY for a skateboarding contest taking place on June 5-6 which will then be donated to our city to enjoy. The 16,000-square-foot skate plaza will be built in the Flushing Meadows area of Queens, home of the world famous Globe skate spot, featuring obstacles inspired by real NYC skate spots. You can see the notes on the above image of the recreated spots. You can get more information on the plaza here.
On a related note, Jon “Jlyn” Ortiz is already placing bets for someone to finish the black rail that goes half way around the plaza. “…50 cash if you do a simple groove trick…100 if u do a simple soul trick….and 150 cash out my pocket if u savannah that b*tch! And I want PROOF!” – Jon Ortiz.
