Nearly 100 degrees couldn't keep the NY skate community away from Go Skateboarding Day's main attraction on June 21.
At 3pm the gates to the renovated Coleman Oval Skatepark were opened and the park was flooded with the first hundred excited skateboarders. That hundred became a few thousand (we lost count after 2,233) and game was officially on. In some unplanned yet seemingly choreographed display of grinding, sliding, and ollies oh my!, skateboarders from all over the region (and even some pros), spent the next 4 hours test-riding the new park. It was, to say the least, awesome.
