There is a fucking billion of these threads but I am just sick of feeling like I am getting vibed out by all these New York kids every time I am at a park. I have not been on a board seriously in about 4 years and I am also not a native to NYC (started skating in Kansas and moved to NYC to go to school) but I just feel like I am getting clowned on and shit every time I am at LES or that one smaller park in Williamsburg. Is there anywhere I can skate alone and not feel like I am getting in the way of your next LurkNYC video? I cant even cruise around a skatepark without being told to move out of the way by some 15 year old kids. I know park etiquette, and I also know that my fatass trying to board slide the end of the curb at LES is not getting in the way. I just want to skate, I want to eat shit and not be made fun of when it is obvious I have not been on a board in awhile. Is there any chill spots in NYC where I can just skate solo and not feel like all eyes are on me? I have not been to Tompkins but I also have heard that place is not mellow whatsoever. I fucking suck at skating, I have for the past 13 years, I just want to be able to do what I love again.

scout out spots that are not a skatepark. there are street spots all over NYC, especially the boroughs. skate as often as possible and start a workout routine to get back into it. also, learning to give less fucks about what strangers think helps a lot.

theyre just insecure because they are from Florida and feel they need to assert themselves on their "home turf"...

a lot of the really popular ledge/plaza-esque spots are pretty quiet on the average day.

there's http://quartersnacks.com/spots/brooklyn/bushwick-greenpoint-williamsburg/williamsburg-monument/ williamsburg monument
http://quartersnacks.com/spots/uptown-manhattan/harlem-morningside/lenox-ledges/ lenox
http://quartersnacks.com/spots/midtown-manhattan/gramercy-murray-hill/20th-and-c/ 20th and C
http://quartersnacks.com/spots/downtown-manhattan/chinatown-east-village-l-e-s/chinatown-manual-pad/ the chinatown manny pad
http://quartersnacks.com/spots/downtown-manhattan/city-hall-area/black-hubba/ and the plaza around black hubba

theyre my haunts - just way quieter and not chock full of everyone else. les is no fun after 10am. the best thing to do is just start at one spot and explore and all that cliche transworld stuff

hate to say it, but you just gotta deal with it. skating at the park w/o pissing everyone off is one of those things that still has to be earned, believe it or not.

Powerlifting. People don't really want to get in your way when they see those traps.
