10 Iconic Skate Spots That No Longer Exist

4. Philadelphia City Hall

Philadelphia

It was saw to construction crews destroy City Hall in The Philadelphia Experiment video from Caste. The official name was Dilworth Plaza. It was situated across from Love Park, and sessioned heavily in nearly every east coast video starting in the mid '90's. Smooth granite tiles made an ideal skate surface for hitting the curved benches, stairs, and rails all over this icon of east coast skateboarding. Ricky Oyola gave us a tour of the spot in the 1995 411VM Philadelphia Metrospective. City Hall even played host to the X-Games street competition in 2001 and 2002

Best Trick: Eric Koston, Noseslide the curved rail
