Spots: City Hall Area / Financial District

Harold Hunter via Mixtape

Marble two stairs up one side, five stairs down the other. Recognizable from a million skate videos.

Bust — ♦♦♦♦♦: Skateboarding is forbidden by plaza rules. The steps are on the far side of the building, so security usually will not hassle you unless they get a complaint or there is an outdoor guard making the rounds. Very crowded and impossible to skate on weekdays. Night and weekend spot.

Location: Pine Street between Nassau Street and William Street in the Financial District.
