Washington Square Park

Spots: Tribeca & West Village

A two-stair Philly step, four stair, round marble ledges, and some pillars to do tricks over. Always crowded with people, except maybe in the dead of winter.

Bust — ♦♦♦♦♦: There are “No Skateboarding” signs posted. Parks Department officers will inevitably roll through and tell you to leave. You may get a ticket if you are really unlucky. Park closes at midnight.

Location: Fifth Avenue and Waverly Place / Washington Square North. Take the R or W to 8th Street–NYU. Skate west on 8th Street for three blocks until you hit Fifth Avenue. Make a left on Fifth Avenue and skate south. The park is at the end of Fifth Avenue, underneath the arch, in about three blocks.
