Columbus Circle has six up ledges that require quite a bit of speed and wax. In the center of the spot is a statue structure set atop of three oversized steps that can be skated either as mini-gaps with short runways, manual pads or low ledges. At each exit, there are also a couple low, foot-and-a-half high metal pillars to do tricks over. Be careful your board doesn’t slip out, because it will definitely get run over by a cab if it goes into the street.
Bust — ♦♦ / Occasional: Best during nights (light situation is decent, though not great) or the winter. The park is filled with people at any reasonable hour on warm days. On rare occasions, cops will cruise through and either take your name down or give you a ticket.
Location: Eighth Avenue and 59th Street. Take the A, C, 1, B or D train to 59th Street–Columbus Circle, and the spot is right outside.
