Battery Park

Spots: City Hall Area / Financial District

Spot: Slightly banked ledges with no end, low beveled ledges, a two-up-five-down and a short ledge over a six-stair that’s approachable from both sides.

There are also short marble ledges and Philly step-ish type thing on marble ground across the street. Across the highway from the benches, are a bunch of mini, two-flat-two double-sets in front of a hotel.

Bust — ♦♦♦♦♦: The Parks Department sometimes won’t hassle you for skating here (even though there are “No Skateboarding” signs posted), but they have been known to give out tickets. The park gets crowded with tourists during the summer, so it is better during the spring/fall. The benches across the street are technically not in the park, and the doorman or downtown red hat security will tell you to leave if you skate those. Same with the double-sets.

Location: The entire waterfront at the southernmost tip of Manhattan. Take the 1 to South Ferry, or the R or W to Whitehall Street and skate towards the water.
