Brooklyn Street Skate Spot, a DIY project built by volunteers and donations with the approval of the city and neighbors. In the tradition of the Burnside skatepark, skaters cleaned up a sketchy piece of waste land and built something cool to skate. Colin Sharp and Jesse McDowell worked with neighbors, police, the railroad and various officials seeking permission for the project. Good work guys. Read the article.

Colin and Jesse and others are working to clean up and reclaim a bit of waste land in Southeast Portland as a public skate spot. They have clearance from the city and have met with neighbors, the police and the railroad. Neighbors and other community organizations are impressed. Skaters for Portland Skateparks provided some funding. You can follow the progress of the project at The Brooklyn Street Skate Spot Facebook page.
