This spot has to be a mega-bust, if not skate-proofed by now. Boston City Hospital circa ’88. I spent about a week there ( in the city, not the hospital ) while on a road trip. It was a bust then but you could still get a session if you were smart about it. I think they used to mention it in Thrasher every once and while, so I made sure to check it out when I was there. More pics after the jump.
You can click on the pics to enlarge. Bostonians? Somebody check in and let us know the status. Is it still there? Below: Security making his presence felt. Hey man, I’m just taking pictures!
The overhead shot. Notice the banked triangle next to the stairs in the upper left corner.
These are the stairs and banks we spoke of earlier. This kid just happened to be on scene when I left. Shortly after this picture was taken I was verbally accosted by a homeless person for skating.
The classic shot. I’ve seen skateparks that weren’t as skateable as this obstacle.
