Spot: The State Building is home to a classic New York City ledge — and nothing screams New York like an absolutely perfect ledge with horrible ground. There are two ledges, one is knee high, the other is thigh high, and both are approximately seven feet long. The ledges are up against a wall, so it makes it a bit safer to try certain tricks because of the wall minimizing the slip-out factor. The ground is rough, but manageable, although you will need to start from fairly far back to gain speed. If the ground was perfect, then this spot would be in Europe.
Bust Factor — ♦♦ / Occasional: Just skate here after 6 P.M. on weekdays or on weekends, and you will not get kicked out.
Location: Worth Street and Baxter Street. Take the J, M, Z, 6, N, Q, R, or W to Canal Street. Skate east on Canal for several blocks until you reach Baxter Street. Make a right on Baxter and skate down until you reach Worth Street. The spot is on the right side.
