We hit up 50 Kent Ave in Brooklyn, NY for a first look at the temporary Nike skate park. Unveiled on GSD the cement park occupies 22,000 sq ft. and has an amazing view of the NYC skyline. Every style and size transition you can think of spans the entire width of the park. Sitting inside the mass amount of perfect flat ground is an assortment of ledges, manny pads, benches, tables, curbs and a flatbars. The left side has eight stairs with two hubbas and a euro-gap. Hours of operation are Thursday through Sunday 11AM – 7PM and there will be a manager on site enforcing some rules. It’s FREE but they want you to sign a waiver.
Thanks to Nike SB, Steve Rodriguez and the Open Space Alliance – North Brooklyn for making this happen. Too bad it’s only up until
Labor Day 9/26 🙁
The skating culture is ass for letting no bikes in. You got chelsa skatepark. How would feel skating up to a park and you cant use it. Bunch of idiots and fuckbois you ever put that rule
Definitely not a rule put in place by the actual people skating. Typically the rules are put in place by the Parks Dept or whoever runs/owns or is responsible for the park.
Thanks for clearing that up. Now its even more of a mystry on why its not allowed from whoever built this
Would have been cool if they re-created the Volcano from the Volcano spot on North 8th. Thats what this reminds me of.
what happens to all of these ramps after labor day? lemme get some of that
Last year they just tore everything down. Not sure if it will be any different this year.
My shit got stolen- phone, wallet, keys. I was dumb to leave it out, but pay attention: corporate spaces inspire G-R-E-E-D
Rule #2 is no bikes. Video shows a group of bikes.
There was no manager present when we shot the photos. Managers are there during the Thursday – Sunday times when it’s open.
