Stateboarding aficionados are in luck. The city’s very first indoor skate park, is scheduled to open on Staten Island July 7, DNAinfo reported. Located at 354 Front Street in Stapleton, 5050 Skatepark, will occupy a space that formerly housed a furniture store.

The 35,000-square-foot property will come replete with rails, ramps and an obstacle course for skateboarders, freestyle bicyclists, rollerbladers and even scooter riders, DNAinfo said.

The owners, Ed Pollio and his girlfriend, Angelica Popolano, inked the lease last month, though finding somewhere to put a skate park was a initially a challenge. “A lot of landlords didn’t want anything to do with us,” Pollio told DNAinfo. “They don’t like teenage kids, they think drugs and that’s not the case.”

According to PropertyShark, the building was erected around 1931, has an assessed value of $92,250 and a market value of $205,000. [DNAinfo]
