In this 2009 video we see a few parts of downtown Minneapolis used as a street skate scape by Davis Torgerson. It is interesting to see the downtown streets, public spaces, and parking garages with few cars on what is most likely a weekend day. An empty skyway even gets transformed into a temporary skate park and a close encounter with a Metro Transit bus results in a little scare, but no injuries.
Is the presence of skateboarding in a city an indication of good urbanism and inviting design of public places?
