Best hip-hop roller-skating (2008)


Every Tuesday and Thursday night, the 21-plus roller-dancing crowd strut through EMPIRE ROLLER-SKATING CENTER, jiggling and shimmying in the center dance rink as if they weren't on four wheels. For an entrance and skate-rental fee totaling only $5 for ladies and $8 for guys, the fearless can flail to disco-y roller-hip-hop beats alongside seasoned roller dancers, against a backdrop of fading neon-green painted palm trees, multiple disco balls, and a video arcade, among other requisite suburban-roller-rink amenities.
