It makes sense that Pier 62 Skatepark at Chelsea Piers, the best in the city, was designed by a California firm, Site Design Group, which is run by a skateboarder. The 15,000-square-foot skate park opened two years ago and features areas for beginners as well as those brave (or crazy) enough to try out the enclosed bowl with 10-foot walls. Visually, it's also one of the coolest, as it sits adjacent to the Hudson River and has open grassy areas, benches, and a carousel. The park is open year-round, and it's free. West 23rd Street at Hudson River, (10011)
