The Foot Bridge on 103rd
Some of my all time favorite spots to skate are located on Randall's Island, which is a massive park that is connected to different boroughs within New York City. Manhattan, Bronx and Queens are connected to the island. The island is host to big events year around such as concerts, organized sports, family reunions and skateboarders. During my early skate days, I would skate all around the city with my friends and never thought to skate over the bridge to see if I could find spots to practice. One day a friend of mine suggested that we should go skate the island and turned out to be a Golden Spot.
