Columbus Circle

Spots: Midtown

Up-ledges that are hard to skate, some low ledges, and pillars to do tricks over.

Bust — ♦♦♦♦: Skateboarding is forbidden by park rules. The park is filled with people at any reasonable hour on warm days, but is calmer at night. Cops have been cracking down here, so you may get a ticket for skating — or if you’re lucky — put in a chokehold and pepper sprayed for skating.

Location: Eighth Avenue and 59th Street. Take the A, C, 1, B or D train to 59th Street–Columbus Circle, and the spot is right outside.
