Crackhead Park

Spots: Midtown

Update — Fall 2017: All the rails here got knobbed.

Spot: Three consecutive sets of five stairs with kinked rails down them, low handicap ramp rails, and the occasional pile of human excrement.

Bust — ♦♦♦♦♦: Skateboarding is forbidden by park rules. The Parks Department usually does not hassle you, but don’t be surprised if they tell you to leave while disregarding someone nodding off in the corner.

Location: 27th Street and Second Avenue in Kips Bay. Take the 4, 5 or 6 to 23rd Street, skate east for two blocks along 23rd, make a left on Second Avenue and skate north for four blocks.
