It should be obvious, but none of the places listed on the QS spots page are authorized places to skate. They are merely frequent destinations for street skaters in the city. Skateboarding is not illegal in New York City, but it is prohibited by park or property rules in many of these places. Please comply with any property owners, security or police if you are told to leave. Confrontation only leads to bigger problems for everyone else and isn’t worth it. QS is not responsible for you being ticketed, arrested, having your feelings hurt by a mean security guard, indicted by a grand jury, robbed in a rough neighborhood, etc. in any of the places listed on the spots page.
