Chunky frontside for regular ledge that kinks down a two stair, as seen in every “Summer Trip to New York” clip. Gap over a ledge and down a two block. Eight-stair round rail with a sketchy runway. We wrote a full history of it in 2017.

Good ledges on bad ground at the State Building across the street.

Also, there are a lot of places nearby to get dollar dumplings.

Bust — ♦♦♦♦♦: The Parks Department usually does not hassle you for skating here, but it does get crowded with basketball players whenever it’s warm. Pitch black at night.

Location: Mulberry Street and Worth Street in Chinatown. Take the 6, J, N, R, Q or Z to Canal Street, skate east for two blocks and make a right on Mulberry. Skate south on Mulberry Street for several blocks until you hit the southernmost end of the park at Worth Street.
