where are yall skating outside of indoors in this weather?
looking for a spot but dont do well with the wind in the 30s
while cool-guying is a real phenomenon, studies show that 83% of all cool-guying incidents can be attributed to the cool-guyee being an awkward weirdo

We've just been layering up and sending it. The closer it gets to the low 30s the more likely I just don't skate. If you find any spots sheltered from the wind lmk haha

just checked out the new ocean hill playground park yesterday. it's a real different vibe from most of the other parks in town. i like it because you can just pump and roll around the banks and qps. it'll probably be terrible when it gets crowded with people just lining up to hit the ledges tho.

idk how that park flew under the radar for so long. feel like everyone in the city just saw that same IG post last week. crazy that side of Bed Stuy/Ocean Hill got TWO skateparks around the same time

That new Ocean Hill park is a blessing. Shoutout to Wade Yates. Def gonna be doing some dawn patrols over there to beat the crowds. Two normal ledges, a good hip, and a nice round rail, in a non-crowded layout... unusual for NY.

Just wanted to shout out Terminal Skateshop uptown.  Still holding it strong.  If you are going to NYC and need a setup, that is the place to go.

gonna be staying in brooklyn in a week and bringing my board. Hoping to squeeze in some morning sessions at blue park if i can.

Anybody got suggestions for decent cheap food, bars and other cool stuff to do? Also if there's any bars out in NY similar to something like Max Fish, lmk!

Not sure how cheap you need cheap to be, but if you're staying in that area you won't be too far of a trip from what are arguably the two best burgers in NY right now, Rolo's in Ridgewood (m) and Superiority Burger (v) right next to Tompkins.  Read the reviews and decide if you will believe the hype.

Re: Bars I could say go to Talea if you're going to McCarren skatepark a block away.  It's woman owned and you are in NYC in March.  Same with Ainslie not too far away.

for a cheap scumbag bar filled with skaters and women that want to have their lives ruined by dating them try Carmelos. $3 pints of beer.

if you find yourself in the east village a low key, cheap option is Sly Fox, a Ukranian bar with the same ukranian dude bartending every night.

Clem's in Williamsburg is owned by pool skater Tony Farmer

for cheap food just go to any deli with 3.5+ stars and get a chopped cheese with everything, or an egg and cheese on a roll. that's gonna be like $6 and $3.50 respectively

another dumb cheap option is North Dumpling in Chinatown. You can easily get like 2 pounds of food there for $10. insanely cheap and good and chinatown has 1 million skatespots (check Quartersnacks)

Good recs, but one note here -- The burger at Rolos is $18 and fries are an extra $8.... the food is objectively great but it's one of the most expensive restaurants in ridgewood and the landlord who helped open it is the absolute worst trendy fuck. avoid

if you're in Ridgewood and want unique cheap bar food from people who actually live in the neighborhood check "I Like Food" in Aunt Ginnys or get german food at Gottscheer hall.

As mentioned above, Carmeloís on Dekalb in Bushwick is a bit of a skater hangout, kinda picking up the mantle from places like Enids or Max Fish now that theyíre closed. Right down the street from Maria Hernandez ledge spot

Also, I kinda hate Roloís. The food is definitely good but everything else about it rubs me the wrong way
