Spot: Midtown

Update — Spring 2014: This spot is being torn down.

Spots: Rows of manual pad blocks on both sides of the building. They can be used as manual pads that drop off into the street. There is also a long manual pad in front of the building and a horrible eight stair at the end of the spot.

Bust — ♦♦♦ / Half-and-half: There are “No Skateboarding” signs posted, and building security will eventually tell you to leave. Better at night or on weekends. Too crowded on weekdays.

Location: 49th Street and Madison Avenue. Take the B, D, F or M to 47th Street-Rockefeller Center, skate north on Sixth Avenue until you reach 49th, make a right and skate east on 49th for two avenues until you reach Madison Avenue.
