Skateparks in New York

If you’re a skate fan or your kid likes anything related to skate including skateboarding, roller skates or BMX and want to see New Yorkers practicing or you want to participate with them then I’ve got you covered 😉

I will show you places where skating is practiced in New York, including Manhattan and the other boroughs: Queens, the Bronx, Staten Island, Brooklyn and even in upstate NYC and states like New Jersey, Connecticut.

It’s really going to be up to you to see whether you just want to watch New Yorkers having fun on the half pipes or if  you just want to enjoy yourself with them in top-notch facilities!!!

Otherwise, for amateur photographers, this is an opportunity to snap great pictures with the Hudson as a background or NY’ skyline.

For all skate and photo fans: ENJOY!!! 🙂
