2010 HHF Woodward Scholarship Recipients



Steve Rodriguez, founder and co-owner of 5boro Skateboards, was recently awarded the prestigious Nike GAMECHANGERS grant through Architecture for Humanity.  In conjunction with the NYC skate community, the grant will be used to re-design and re-construct the L.E.S./Coleman Oval/Manhattan Bridge Skatepark.

At 5:00pm on Saturday, May 14th, a community design session will be held at the skatepark which is located underneath the Manhattan Bridge on the corner of Cherry and Pike Streets in Chinatown.  The meeting is open to the general public and all are welcome to attend and voice their ideas concerning the re-design of the skatepark as well as their larger vision for the surrounding Coleman Oval Park.  If you are planning to attend, please show your support on the Facebook event page.

Whether you attend this weekend’s event or not, Steve and Architecture for Humanity would like everyone to fill out the L.E.S./Coleman Oval/Manhattan Bridge Skatepark survey which is available by clicking here.  The more background info and feedback they collect, the better the re-design will turn out.  So it’s very important that YOU get involved!
