One Less Spot Downtown :(

The building started knobbing the entire southern ledge section at the World Trade ledges as of a few days ago. They haven’t completely ruined the ledge off the seven yet, except you’ll need to gap out a foot past the first two knobs if you want to get a last minute trick on it. It’s safe to assume they’ll knob the entire ledge sooner rather than later. The northern section with the manual pad and the small ledge over the tree gap is skateable, but who knows how long that’ll stay around for…

For a spot that came pre-knobbed when it opened up in the summer of 2006, it’s amazing the rest of the ledges here made it this far. It was probably the best spot in the Financial District area that you sorta kinda maybe occasionally had a chance of skating, especially with the metal Seaport ledges gone.

Here’s a fun session from when we were filming for the Christmas 2013 clip. We didn’t get kicked out from 3 P.M. onwards. It was amazing and unprecedented. Good times.

There’s also this dumb clip from summer 2007. 240p.
