Benjamin Soto Skate Park was recently demolished on Staten Island. There’s a rally this Sunday to get it rebuilt:
“On Sunday May 15, 2011 at noon we will be having a demonstration to support the rebuilding of Benjamin Soto Skate Park. As you know, this skate park was located on Father. Capodanno Blvd. in Midland Beach and was bulldozed by the Parks Department on April 18, 2011. We NEED to have this park rebuilt for the kids of the community. This was their one and only skate park on the Island and now these kids have no place to go. Our goal is to reach out to as many people as possible for support of the rebuilding. We would appreciate any help you could give us in this matter. Your presence would be very beneficial. Please attend to support.”
