description: This small skate plaza in Williamsburg has a really nice ledge feature, one quarterpipe and some steep banks with grindable lip. Open whenever you feel like skating. No proper lights.
nearby attractions: McCarren Park aka "hipster beach", the main drag of Bedford Ave. and KCDC are right nearby. Also the park is just a few blocks from the skatepot under the BQE
