Olu and Ahlem's design team: Manhattan Bridge Skate Park & Allen/Pike Street

Skaters and neighbors build scale models of Manhattan Bridge skate park, Allen and Pike Street, and bike/skate traffic lane designs. They add traffic lights, pedestrian overpasses, seating and water fountains to the Allen and Pike Street malls to create a corridor linking the skate park with the rest of the city to the north.

See this link for their final presentation of their designs to Leroy Street Architects, the Parks Department, New Design High School staff and students, Hester Street, and Open Road.

Moveable Marble Ledges: moveable with a forklift. FAQ: yes that is Billy Rohan on the forklift.

If skateboarders want to use these as marble skateable ledges they can be professionally cut and placed within an overall design within the Manhattan Bridge Skatepark. They can be joined together by a professional stone mason so they can be long ledges.
