Maloof Skatepark is a 16,000 square-foot facility within Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens. It features street and transition elements on three levels. This article 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.
Some skaters hang out under the Unisphere, using the base of the fountain as a skate rink.
Updated 2022-06-19: I found that inline skaters have set up camp behind the Mist Garden at the park. See the new article for where to find them at the Unisphere and past the Mist Garden: Slalom bladers at Corona Park.
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.
