The first completed HAO project in New York is now open. The Coleman Oval Skate Park, situated under the Manhattan Bridge in New York got inaugurated by a crowd of eager skaters. Drop by, bring your board (and your helmet).

By creating a park that emphasizes and underlines local diversity, Coleman Oval Park has the potential to become a one of a kind city park simply by accommodating the potential of the dense urban area within which it sits — the secret is in the mix of programming that appeals to a broad demographic and is relevant to the neighborhood. With the first phase complete, the Coleman Oval Skate Park has become one of the most heavily trafficked skate parks in New York City.,-73.993387,17z/data=!3m1!4b1
