Title: NYC Metro Area General Thread
Post by: CossRooper on March 17, 2021, 12:23:37 PM
It's hard to keep up with skate things going on in NYC so making a thread. Less of a travel guide and more of a "whats going on" sort of thing. Premiers, spots coming and going, trending flatground spots, gossip/slander/lies etc etc.

Taylor Nawrocki's coffee spot is the move if you find yourself in Williamsburg. Best IG content in the game.

that curb is behind restaurant depot
Coming in here to say thanks for the tip on this one, just had an excellent session here today. For anyone else checking it out: Walk in through the side driveway (closer to the Fed Ex building) instead of the main Restaurant Depot parking lot if you want to avoid security

All the streets are Silent NYC premiere is at the Angelika Village East on Friday, July 23

https://www.angelikafilmcenter.com/villageeast/film/all-the-streets-are-silent\

Also they installed new super bright LED lights at Williamsburg Monument on all the lightposts that had the shitty dim orange-ish bulbs. The upper part with the 3 step curb is so bright and skateable all night now.

People don't love you skating in front of their houses down there. Additionally the traffic can move super fast on that road.

If so, respect. Gotta protect the spot. I get it and I knew it was kind of a long shot.

If not, ok, I will definitely not be driving out to York PA during my week out East 😂

I used to live on 170th and would go to this park after like 11 pm all the time, just for the lit up downhill area. And although I am lucky and no one ever bothered me, it was SKETCHY. There are always 4 or more people in that tunnel all shooting up and giving the most intense eyes. Then all the people coming in and out of the woods...ugh. The lights are great, though.
