Skatingboarding is part of the DNA of NYC's street culture, but somehow in most of the city it's either illegal or impossible. On top of that, half the year it's too damn cold or the weather is too shitty to skate at all. Enter Skate Brooklyn, an excellent new skateshop in BK that also houses that rare and coveted chance to skate indoors on a just-the-right-size mini ramp. Hit them up to see about open skate nights and ramp jams. -Noah Johnson
