 I just found out my favorite old skate spot is demolished.

The circle on People’s Street T-Head was originally created as an outdoor rollerskating rink in the 1960’s, I believe.  As rollerskating and rollerblading (spellcheck doesn’t recognize either ‘rollerblading’ or ‘spellcheck’) both died out by the late 1990’s, skateboarding became the only serious recreational sport that happened in this area.  Families still happily and with welcome came to ride bikes and congregate, somehow all acknowledging the previous use the area had – how else would they know to come? (or at least I think) – but the spot was controlled by skateboarders, just as the shrimpers controlled the roadway leading up to it.  This is where I learned my first grinds on a curb, ollies off a drop, my first backside tailslide, nollie heelflip.  Many of my good friends were met here, or first spotted here.  Most everything worthwhile during the time that I was obsessed with skateboarding and wore it on the front of my tee shirt happened here and I can pretty much remember every day it all happened.  I also came here when I had absolutely nothing to do and no one to turn to, when I had a car, when I didn’t.  I would skate miles to get here to sit under a gray sky and obscene wind to just have given it a chance.  It was the sort of place you relied on to make everything possible, because it was great and there was simply nothing better.  I think around the time a lady came around selling raspas and snow cones and doing a solo-karaoke routine to draw attention from the stage which we all did tricks off of, adlibing lines like "There’s no such thing as love, only bills" to Cher songs, I realized it didn’t have much time left in this world.  Now there’s a concrete skatepark a mile or so away with all the shitty transition and low-level curbs any park rat could hope for, but absolutely no fair place to get props for a perfect foot high nollie flip.  When I heard that it’d been flattened, I couldn’t even drive by to look.  I’d like to imagine both the stages are gone, so that not even more acid drops or mannys or ollies on ollies off could be done, and only left is an undeservedly smooth slab near the water where no one but a skateboarder would bother to roll around and make a trick happen.
