The Monument

Spots: Uptown & Harlem

Some curbs on good ground and some benches on bad ground. Popular local spot for people from the Upper West Side.

Bust — ♦♦♦♦♦: Skateboarding is forbidden in the plaza, but the Parks Department doesn’t always hassle you. There’s an elderly crowd in this neighborhood, so be careful when skating here.

Location: 89th Street and Riverside Drive.
