I saw a TR from another site of some guys shredding central park so it has been done. I believe they were just sessioning a jump though.

I live near Queens close to the beach So a few of the fellas packed the ramp going down to the beach and built a jump at the bottom. was pretty sick this is a pick of one of my boys hitting it.

I lived downtown last year for school, and I snowboarded there once. There were only a few other people there, and I went when we had less than 6 inches of snow. It got torn up pretty quick, and rocks starting popping out all over and I did not want to destroy my board so I left. Regardless, theres a teeny tiny small hill on the southeast end that leads to like a set of 4 or five stairs. But, it fails part b below:

It difficult to find a good spot where a) your allowed to snowboard and b) your snow isn't going to get walked all over by tourists.

I would add pictures, but I dont have them. sorry.

Cool Pic. I live in Queens also, I never thought about heading down to the beach to build a ramp. Cops didn't give any trouble?

This was actually in Long Beach on Long Island next to far Rockaway. Cops were cool. cant see from this pic but there was alot of people standing along the railing taking pix and watching. They also built it up at the top for more speed. it was up for a good week till it all melted but there was alot of sessions going on, even at night, and cops never shut it down.

me and my friends went up to 107th in the park by the pond, and we hit some cliffs up there.
take a look at riverside park too, because there are some nice rails there
