It's funny because every New York curb skater I've met pines for the metal or granite curbs of NYC.

I only know socal curbs and never been to NYC but if I were going to go I would hang out at a bus stop on state street by an old brick church and wait for a sighting of our GodFather

Pier 76 has a curb that a someone rub-bricked and lacquered up. It is very fun and is my after work spot most nights.

Blue Bloods curb in Greenpoint isn't bad (Jewel/Calyer), as long as there's no equipment blocking it.

my favorite curb spot is borough hall. not exactly a slappy spot but still low impact fun with lots of space to spread out, and no cars.

Isnít borough hall curb the one that got knobbed? Or am I confusing it with a different downtown BK spot?

After living in LA for a while I donít think our curbs back in NYC can compare at all, sadlyó but there are still some options

Obviously all the Coda curbs. A few I skate on the reg are Forest Park in Queens, K bridge park, blue park, and American Playground in Greenpoint, but there are several others around as well.

Thereís a really long double sider right near K bridge but I donít want to blow it up too much. Itís also right near the cemetery curbs which you can probably read about on Quartersnacks and have definitely seen in vids.

The lowest step at Weirfield school in Ridgewood is sort of a curb but it sucks imo. There are a few skatable curbs in Maria Hernandez park now, one double sided at the autozone on Wyckoff, and one in McGolrick too, but these are all like mediocre spots to skate if youíre already in the area, not worth a trip on their own imo.
