Long Island City Waterfront

Spots: Queens

Update: The long, wavy benches have been knobbed. The single ones remain the same. The wooden ledges also had chunks taken out of them.


Wooden benches that can be skated as banks you ollie up to, plus some other wooden benches.

Bust — ♦♦♦♦♦: There is no skateboarding allowed in the park, and the Parks Department patrols it heavy. They’ll tell you to leave as soon as they see you, or possibly issue you a summons if you’re unlucky.

Location: Gantry State Park, on the Long Island City waterfront. Take the 7 to Vernon-Jackson, skate west on 50th Avenue until you hit Center Boulevard (the last street before you hit the waterfront.) Make a right on Center Boulevard and skate two blocks north until you see the waterfront plaza. The stuff to skate is all out on the pier.
