Title: FDR
Post by: christ on August 16, 2009, 07:55:00 PM
FDR is Gnarly...I feel like it lives in the shadow of burnside in the public eye but deserves more love.  I have some cool photos on my photoblog and plan on posting more soon

"deserves more love?" right. because the followers should always get more love than the originators, right?

fdr is rad and all, but do you have any idea how stupid that sounded?

i've noticed that usually, the people who say the locals somewhere are "unbearable" are very often the ones who are unbearable.

We were definitely talking about the New Deal in the concrete parks section.  And I do mean the skate company.

I've skated Marginal, Burnside and FDR, in that order, and I've got to say that FDR was my favorite...even though it was covered with rain and snow, and we could only skate a few things.  There's just so much shit to pump and flow around on.

Everyone I met in Philly was super nice.  I'm sure FDR has it's moments, but so does any under the bridge park.  Show up in the middle of the day when nothing's going on and you'll be fine.

'crete its always burnside burnside burnside............nothin against burnside ive skated there a bunch camped out there a bunch...burnside is sick...... but in my opinion fdr is waay funner , just more lines and more shit to skate i mean fuck they got a fuckin scary as hell vert ramp, peanut pool, a FUCKING GIGANTIC vert bowl...smooth solid mini ramp off to the side to chill on.....it's just a sick ass park that you rarely see footage of ...i dont know i just wanted to show some fdr love....i cant believe no one has posted on this thread for like 5 months !!! and to all you kiddies who'v never been to burnside runnin around sayin "oohh burnside is like the best park ever"....go there and see what you throw down....that place can be tough......fdr is just mellower ...one word to describe it ...........FLOW.......... here's some pictures ive taken of fdr
