Skate Spot Porn: Across the Street From Black Hubba

Remember that spot across from Black Hubba? It had a some rails people haven’t skated since the 90s and a good marble ledge over three steps. After 9/11, they put security booths at every corner (obviously for way more important reasons than skateboarding), which made it an immediate bust with a good chance of a fine and board confiscation. Well, it’s looking good after a recent facelift: Ledge view, curved bench and ledge view, circular manny pad view.

Just count on it remaining a tease, because it’s part of a federal building. But hey, Jake Johnson had enough time to do that narrow wall ollie twice (same building) and security eased up on skating the Courthouse Drop these past few years, so you never know (though it’s a better chance that some moron gets arrested for skating there the first weekend the barricades come down.)

Other recent spot developments:

The bank to grated green ledge on the eastside / the most blown out spot of the past two years is gone.

Contrary to initial reports, the Chase three-up-five-down might be getting restored to its original surface material.

Uptown isn’t hyped on that West 4th Street dancing.

  • the park with that green box is actually the perfect place for some diy shit. there’s nobody there but crackheads and its poorly maintained. complete deadzone. surprised they even bothered removing it.

    lugging cinderblocks and shit over the overpass and shit might be a pain though
