In my effort to be a a wee bit less of my usual
Ms Piggy/psycho-ologist self, I have taken up rollerskating.
I never realized how inhospitable city roads are: (pot holes, broken glass, debris, hills that are treacherous for skaters and professional cyclists bent on running me over and proving that the bike lanes are not meant for roller skaters or neophyte cyclists)
So where can a non athlete junkie find a smooth continuous, level surface where they may rollerskate at their own pace in Brooklyn?
The only place I have found is in Manhattan by the west side highway. Smooth, sweet and lovely if you go when the mad cyclists aren't there.
