There Will Be No [skating at the] Church This Sunday

Home of many a frontside 5050 back 180 out and 5-0 back shove-out, this sliver of a marble wall protruding from a place of worship on 114th and Morningside will no longer play host to future “Summer Trip to New York!” endeavors. As per intel via @lcuadrado18 on Instagram, the church installed brackets over the main ledge. It is a shock it took them this long — because for the past ~ten years, you’d pull up to this thing and there’d be a mob of kids who just got kicked off the Columbia campus bashing into the wall during a 6 P.M. service, while some maintenance worker from the church is losing his mind about the noise. Gotta stack tho.

The wax on the upper section of the wall was a much speculated-on mystery in 2018-2019, until 917 #2 came out and we were all like, “Duh, Max. Obviously.”

Now, all we have left to do on W 114th Street is wait out the scaffolding on the Zipper Ledge, which has been there since like 1987.
