Dipskate Team Rider Ramelle Knight put this short edit up of himself skating the now popular LES (Lower East Side) skate park located under the Manhattan Bridge. If you haven’t been there recently you can see all the upgrades they made including all of the various ledges and curved practice rails. If you have been there recently, then you know how hard it is to flow in that park but some how Bronx, NY native, Ramelle Knight, gets the job done lacing every trick with steeze and making each spin out of a trick look effortless even off of the smallest object. Check the edit up top.

Thanks to Kixx for the find

Boston, MA native and frequent New York City visitor, Anthony Chen, came down to our city earlier in the month where he sessioned the midtown Manhattan area with photographer Drew Humphrey. Hitting the now infamous Glory/UPS/Perfect ledges (this spot has too many names) along with the spot known as Bottle Rails, Drew caught some of Chen’s arsenal of perfectly steezed out tricks. Check the rest of the photos after the jump. All photos by Drew Humphrey

Ryan Loewy’s Throwback Picture Post

January 17, 2009

First and foremost let me say thank you to Ryan for not only providing great pictures but for providing a great story to go along with them. Ryan is a native New Yorker and has been rolling almost all his life. He relocated to Connecticut in 2005 but continues to go to school in Long Island for photography. He sent us two photos from the famous Brooklyn Banks and one pic from the downtown area. Check them out below along with the story he provided us. Thanks again Ryan!

“These photos were taken in August of 2007. I had moved from Glen Head, NY (Long Island) to Danbury, CT in my Junior year of high school. Before I had moved, I was skating with a group of BMXers since no one else bladed in my town. I had gone to the city many, many times, and got to know the historic Manhattan Skate Scene, from the Brooklyn Banks to the China Town Ledges. When I got acquainted at the school in my new town, I met a handful of rollerbladers, which I was and still am stoked on. I eventually took them down to Manhattan one day to expose them to the great scene of Manhattan. I had just purchased a digital SLR camera that year and was able to capture some great photos from our trip to the city. New York is definitley the Mecca of rollerblading; every rollerblader must make the trip to experience it. I continue to do photography today as well as rollerblade and hope to combine the two in my future, with New York being a major influence upon both.” – Ryan Loewy

Spot Check: 44th Street and 12th avenue in Manhattan

January 4, 2009

Whether you’re from New York or just visting, you know that Time Square is the number one place to visit when you’re here. Tucked away behind the glits and glamour of 42nd street though, you can find an almost perfect skate spot where the ledges are as beautiful as the scenary they surround. We here at I Roll NY introduce a new concept titled, Spot Check(ing), where we show the NY community along with outsiders and future visitors our local skate spots for your online conveinence. The purpose of these postings will be to show rollers in general New York area skate spots, along with pictures, and the best times to go and visit the featured spot. We hope these postings will help you with your traveling and encourage you to visit the NY area.

The trains that will leave you closest to our featured spot, 44th street and 12th avenue, are the A,C,E train. They will leave you at 42nd street and 8th ave. You may also take the N,Q,R,W,1,2,3 trains but they will leave you in the heart of the time square area filled with the typical tourist.

Ignore the lights and the people that will surely be in your way and turn around and walk up the avenues. We highly suggest walking to this spot due to the many people and cars that are in the area. As well, their are typically security guards that are near the skate spot so you’ll get kicked out before you even get to look at the spot.
