Riding the tube

Posted in NYC by Andrew Spender on July 23, 2009

As you would imagine, there are a lot of skateboarders in the city. I’m fascinated by them. There’s something about the simplicity of a skateboard as a means of urban transport that really appeals to me. I also admire the graceful action of an experienced skateboarder as s/he skims along a street at high speed. It was that fluid, almost rhythmic motion that made me stop and watch the skateboarders at this tube park on the Hudson River.
