Tribeca Skate Park New York New York
The unique design incorporates 8,750 sq. ft. of diverse combination of terrain including stairs, ledges and rails that resemble an actual street plaza. Stone veneer and granite pavers were used in the fine details of the design and offer the park a true “street feel.”
Unlike the California-style skate park that the Trust opened on Pier 62 in Chelsea earlier this year, the $650,000 TriBeCa park near Pier 25 is a street-style course, featuring railings, stairs, ledges and ramps.
The inspiration behind the park was New York City skateboarding legend Andy Kessler, who died last year of an insect sting at the age of 48. A daredevil skateboarder who later worked with the city to build skate parks, Kessler was a leader of the city’s skating world for several decades.
