Astoria Skatepark is located right under the Triborough Bridge, in Queens. It is a 21,500-square-foot installation with transitions on three levels of surfaces including concrete and bricks. For inline skaters, there are also paved trails around the Astoria Park, and an entire shoreline street closed to motor vehicles for bikes and skaters. This is a part of my Public Skateparks on Long Island series.
Here is a video showing what this skatepark looks like.
These pictures give you an idea of what you’ll find at this skatepark.
The name Xinhai Dude 辛亥生 is a pun in Chinese, as it means both “he who was born in Xinhai” as well as “he who studies Xinhai”. I had an ambitious plan to write something about the great Xinhai Revolution of 1911, thus my blog https://xinhaidude.com. But after an initial flurry of activities the initiative petered out. One day I will still carry it through. But for now, this website has turned into a conglomerate of my work on various topics of interest to me, including travel pictures, RC model airplane flying, inline skating, ice skating, classical music composition, science fiction short stories, evolution and atheism.
