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 on weekdays. Night and weekend spot.

Location: Pine Street between Nassau Street and William Street. Take the J or Z to Broad Street, and skate north on Nassau Street (Broad Street turns into Nassau Street) for one block. Make a right on Pine Street and the spot is in the middle of the block.
