On Saturday, Nov. 9, a farewell skate session was planned at the Brooklyn Street Skate Spot in Portland, Ore. The 3-year-old DIY skatepark had to be torn down due to the building of   the TriMet Light Rail Transit Project. Unlike most DIY skateparks, the city and community were supportive of the park and came out to celebrate in droves during the last days.

Here's a look at how Brooklyn Street was constructed and the good times that were had over the years.
