The beginnings of Portland's Brooklyn Street Skate Spot originated during a searing summer afternoon in 2010 with an ample pour of concrete onto a lone Jersey barrier. The resulting skate sessions back then were fun and entertaining and showed promise for what could become of the vacant region of land beside the Union Pacific railway tracks. Johnny Turgesen crailtaps upon the cornerstone Jersey barrier that started it all in 2010.
