I went for an all day longboard rally this past Saturday. It was gorgeous in the city. I met up with Q’bn, Daly and the Belge on 181st for some unforgettable runs on the Neverending Hill and then a quick board through Ft. Tryon, my favorite park in New York to skate around this time of year.
We then proceeded to descend from the Heights and head to Central Park for a few laps. The ride down was absurdly nice, and thanks to suggestions by Q’bn, my Manhattan Mountain Descent Map has been revised for the best 8 mile downhill skate in all of New York City.
A very intriguing monument found in J. Hood Park as we cruised down Haven.The sculpture is calleds 3000 A.D. Diffusion Piece, a sculpture by Terry Fugate-Wilcox installed in 1974. Made of magnesium and aluminum plates bolted together, the artwork is expected to diffuse, or mix, by the year 3000.
After an exhuasting day of skating i managed to take a fall on the Central Park Loop, leaving my mangled hands and pants looking like i had been mauled by a wolverine. Well worth it. This Saturday is a Central Park skate, see the Bustin Blog for more details.
