breezy ledges
third avenue
Here you will find three, well-waxed, granite ledges in front of a small strip of stores and restaurants. The main, and most-skated ledge is a foot and a half in height, eight feet long, and skateable on both sides, while the others don't have ends due to them being blocks off by rails, and are only skateable on top of the platform. At the end of the plaza, there is a very narrow set of six stairs.

Across the street, there are a bunch of very steep banks composed out of white bricks. A couple of them run along sets of five stairs so it is possible to do a slide or grind trick across the edge and roll into the embankment if the edges are re-waxed.

This is usually a winter/cold-weather spot because during warm seasons, there are chairs set out in front of the restaurants, making the owners come out to tell you to leave. The banks are hit and run if you skate at the top, although if you stay at the bottom it's possible that you could get a few minutes in before the guard comes out. Either way, there's no avoiding him because the security window is only ten feet away from the rest of the spot.

31st Street and 3rd Avenue. Take the 4, 5 or 6 to 23rd Street, skate east on 23rd for one block, and north on 3rd Avenue for eight blocks and the ledges are on the left side of the street, and the banks are on the right.
