| NEW YORK SKATE SPOT & PARK DIRECTORY |

New York City is one of the best places to skateboard in the world. Nothing beats just grabbing your board and hitting the streets of Manhattan. The outer boroughs, Long Island and NY State will require a little more knowledge of where to go but the spots can be worth it. If you’re visiting please make sure to respect the spots and the people around them as conflicts can get the  spots shutdown or even destroyed.
