Singapore SKATE COMPETITION ( JUNE 2010).
Today New York City christened a brand new public skatepark in Manhattan right along the river on the west side of town. Designed and constructed by Californa Skateparks and Site Design Group, the new park is located on Pier 62 at the westernmost end of 22nd street in the Chelsea neighborhood. It's 15,000 square feet and is open 8am till dusk every day. It features an enclosed bowl that tops out in the deep end at 10 feet with pristine pool coping. The remainder of the park consists of a massive flow section and street elements circling the periphery. The whole park is oval in shape and blended into the landscape of the newly renovated pier area.
There are definitely some unique obstacles in the mix at this park.
