No skateboarding!

This bit of elevated stonework downtown near Proctor's Theatre used to be a popular place for skateboarders to practise grinding (sliding on the body or the trucks instead of using the wheels). Then, no doubt for safety's sake, someone installed these steel balls along the edge, thinking that would put an end to it.

Skateboarders love a challenge, and if you look at the ball, it's clear it's been banged up.


  1. They don't look very safe, so just like you I think any skater would take that as a fun challenge.


The spammers have struck. Due to this I will be moderating all comments. Sorry for the hassle, but it's the only choice because I refuse to turn on word verification.
