Back in 2010 Victor Guilefoy, A.J. DeStephano, Alton Lawson (pictured above, far left) and some of their friends began to develop a dilapidated court at  Ormand G. Spencer park (East Water Street) and make it a place to skate.

Victor G. told me his friends wanted a public skating facility since there are times when skates get tickets for being on the road or sidewalks. After some civic finesse with the Parks Commissioner they got their wish.

Fast forward to Wednesday, when it was almost 50-degrees and Ormond Spencer Park, located near the vacated Kennedy Square Complex,  pulsated with kick…push…jump, and the sounds of skateboarders surfing on air.
