For our next “Evolution Of…” we kept things more mellow and decided to visit a famous and extremely easy-to-find spot in Manhattan’s Financial District.

The Pyramid Ledges are super popular with both out-of-towners and locals too lazy to explore because they look cool (all those little edges poking out) and they’re “centrally located.” But more importantly, compared to other iconic New York spots like D7 or Black Hubba, these ledges fairly easy to skate (i.e. even if you suck you can get a clip).

Really, the biggest challenge at this spot are the Wall Street assholes on their lunch break or cops suggesting you go scooter in the East River.

We were able to catch up with Mark Suciu, Zered Bassett, RB Umali, Aaron Meza, and Josh Kalis to piece together a little oral history of notable tricks that have gone down at the spot.

Make sure to yell at us below if you’ve got a spot you want us to profile, especially if it’s outside of NYC. We could use some travel days. (Just make sure it’s not only available in THPS.)
