New York Post-NYC skaters, locals pushing to get fenced-off Brooklyn Banks back

Brooklyn Bridge Manhattan:New York - Construction workers at work site under the Brooklyn Bridge in Lower Manhattan. The area was once a world known skate park called Brooklyn Banks (aka Red Brick Park).
The Brooklyn Banks is a legendary skating mecca that first gained popularity in the 1980s.

They can’t take it to the Banks.

Manhattan locals, skaters and a non-profit are fed up with the city’s glacial pace of repairs to the Brooklyn Bridge, which has fenced off nine acres of space for more than a decade — including a world-famous skate spot and a public basketball court.

“I don’t think the city has any awareness of just how vitally important the place is,” said Joe Ramone, 36, who runs the Save the Brooklyn Banks Instagram account. “It is more than just a ‘Skate Spot’. It was a home for so many.” 

The Brooklyn Banks is a legendary skating mecca that first gained popularity in the 1980s and was the stomping ground of renowned skaters like Harold Hunter and Eric Koston. The site was recreated in the 2003 video game “Tony Hawk’s Underground.”

Seaport and Two Bridges locals who’ve never heard of Tony Hawk want the Banks back too.
