Manhattan Bridge skatepark crew with Tony Hawk


The Tony Hawk Foundation is funding their first NYC Skatepark. 5boro's Steve Rodriguez made this happen and Open Road is managing design and construction with skaters from all over NYC.
Over 100 skaters have contributed ideas to participatory design sessions, shown up at Parks Department and Community Board meetings, and presented with Tony Hawk (above)
