5050 Skatepark In Write up about NYC on UK Tourist Site

Staten Island

There’s only one way to arrive at this borough and that’s on the iconic bright orange Staten Island Ferry, which offers fantastic views of the Statue of Liberty as it sails past.

Staten Island is a peaceful area away from the busy city mainland of New York. Here visitors will find all things from NYC’s history, with museums and historic homes dedicated to preserving the past. That’s not to say that Staten Island is lost in time, in fact the borough is changing rapidly. The entire waterfront is under development and in the coming year there are plans to build a string of hotels, restaurants and outlet malls as well as the globe’s largest observation wheel. These additions are set to modernise traditional Staten Island.

One place already providing 21st century fun is 5050 Skatepark, the only indoor facility where would-be pro skateboarders can practise their moves and check out the competition in the Stapleton neighbourhood. 5050 Skatepark’s Angelica says the area has a lot to offer tourists. “Stapleton is a hub for arts and culture, with many small restaurants, café shops, and bars and an artist gallery,” she explains. If your youngsters are new to alternative sports, the team at 5050 Skatepark offer one-on-one lessons to get them ruling the ramps in no time.

More fun awaits kids at Staten Island Children’s Museum, where creativity and curiosity are nurtured to help children learn about the world around them through a range of interactive activities. The fun and games include a green living room, where your child will discover how Earth-friendly low carbon wind energy works, or dress the part and become a firefighter learning to use all the right gear. The museum is housed in the island’s Snug Harbour Cultural Center & Botanical Garden, a unique venue converted from the first home for retired sailors in the US into a buzzing regional arts centre. Combining creativity with a horticultural mission and a heaving calendar of upcoming events, the attraction has plenty to see and do for those visiting the borough.

Bay Street Corridor Meeting at 5050 Skatepark Thursday 7 Pm

Screen Shot 2015-11-07 at 2.36.37 PMThe purpose of the Public Workshops will be to more closely examine some of the key issues we have already heard through your input, and provide a mixture of interactive and educational activities designed to dive deeper into these issues.

The attached flyer provides additional information on the event, and we encourage you to forward this email to anyone who may be interested to provide input on the future of the Bay Street Corridor and the surrounding areas. Light refreshments, kindly prepared by Bay Sweet Café, will be available both days. Please note that these two workshops will be repetitive and each offer the same exercises and opportunities for discussions with planners and other city agencies.

Is Google Plus Dead?

Is Google Plus Dead?

I am not sure but people look at Our Google Plus Skatepark page. We have only been open for a little over 3 years and seem to have over 472,000 views on its page. That number does not mean we have had 472,000 people at #5050skatepark. We can only Dream. It seems like G+ just can’t get its people to interact with its very easy interface. We have been trying to post when we can on it.

Maybe give it a try and follow our page too!
