New York City, as far as I'm concerned, is one of the greatest places to be a longboarder. I think a big part of the allure behind the sport is the sense of danger involved. No where does that danger feel more real than NYC, where the traffic is notorious and the cabbies are unpredictable. There's a very real sense that you could die out here. That feeling lends itself to camaraderie amongst all members of the push community, from skaters to rollerbladers, and all in between. Danger makes you feel alive, and that vitality is best shared with the group.
