When the unfortunate news came this past summer that adjacent buildings were being torn out and the area was being prepped for the new transit tracks, the locals knew there was only a short time left for this little slice of skateboarding utopia.

On Saturday, Nov. 9, a farewell skate session was planned and brought together many of the regulars and enthusiasts who helped make Brooklyn Street Skate Spot what it was over the past three years. The community's DIY skatepark was properly celebrated with a day of great skating, a sizable barbeque and a mix of emotions.
