50/50 Skatepark

Back in November, LFS (Looking for Spots) and Staten Island’s own 5050 Skatepark threw a street jam consisting of the LFS crew using Stapleton as their playground and pulling off some impressive tricks.

If you thought that the YouTube channel for Staten Island’s 50/50 Skatepark would be nothing but skateboarding videos, you’d be mistaken. It does have clips of amazing skateboarders, but that’s just the beginning. One highlight from the eclectic channel is the “What’s Your Story?” web series.

The North Shore of Staten Island is known for its rich history & historic architecture. Three of the Event Spaces, The Great Hall in Snug Harbor, Alice Austen House & Edgewater Hall are located in historic buildings and three are set in urban settings, Overspray, 5050 Skatepark & Flagship Brewery.

The video crew from 50/50 Skatepark took a trip to the abandoned Seaview Hospital and caught some interesting views. Watch as the guys explore the various buildings within the complex.

You might now know this, but rapper Lil Wayne is actually pretty decent with a skateboard. The Young Money CEO recently visited Staten Island’s 50/50 skatepark for an after-hours grind session.
