The famous Byrne park in Parkslope, Brooklyn better known under the title of “51 rail” due to the park featuring one of Brooklyn’s most famous skate spots is under construction. 51 rail has been featured in various NYC and tour videos. No word on when the park will re-open yet. Thanks to Theron Chung for the information and photo.

Finally got to post the pictures up from Lets Roll NY #6: Brooklyn. Better late than never right? Anyway, If you were in attendance you know a bunch of sick tech switch ups went down during the day along with a lot of smooth tricks and gaps at all of the Brooklyn spots. If you weren’t able to make it out you can check out some of the highlights after the jump. All photos taken by Chris Cofer, Craig Benabu and Drew Humphrey. You can also see all of the pics from LRNY Brooklyn on the I Roll NY Flickr. Anyone want to donate to buy a premium account?

Just got the word from Victor that this week’s Lets Roll NY session will take place in Brooklyn, NY tomorrow. The meet up time will start at 5:00-6:30pm giving everyone enough time to make your way to BK. I want to see all you lazy Bronx kids in my neck of the woods cause you know us Brooklyn kids are always traveling to you. Take the M or R train (I suggest the R) to Union Street and walk to 5th avenue between 3rd and 4th street. You can also take the R, F, and M train to 4th avenue and 9th street to get to the first spot which is the 51 rail in Byrne Park. Make sure to come out and have some fresh wheels with you cause we’ll be doing some traveling.
