Brooklyn Banks

Spots: City Hall Area / Financial District

Update – 2018: You could skate here for a brief moment in the spring and summer of 2017 thanks to a giant hole in the fence, but it has since been patched up, and police officers have been issuing summonses to anybody caught inside the fence.

The Banks were fenced off by the Department of Transportation in June of 2010 so they could administer repairs on the bridge. You have not been able to skate here since, and the space under the bridge is under constant security.

Bust — ♦♦♦♦♦: This place is designated for skating, so you’re not going to get kicked out of here.

Location: Parallel to Frankfort Street, under the Brooklyn Bridge on/off ramps between Police Plaza and Pace University. Take the 4, 5, 6, J, M or Z to Brooklyn Bridge–City Hall and skate east downhill on Frankfort Street. Make a left on Pearl Street and the spot is right there.
