5050 Skatepark on Staten Island: NYC’s Only Indoor Skate Park
Last week when we shared our list of the best NYC spots for kids that opened in 2012, we mentioned Staten Island's 5050 Skatepark. As New York City's only public indoor skatepark, it truly is unique. And unlike outdoor skateparks, which cater to skateboarders, 5050 also welcomes riders on bikes, scooters and Rollerblades.
My family and I live on Staten Island and ever since 5050 Skatepark opened last summer, we'd heard rave reviews. So a few weeks ago, my eight-year-old and I decided to go check it out.
