End of a few Eras…

So I’m in NYC for a few days, because well, I felt like having my birthday here. Yesterday Erin, who I’m staying with in Upstate Manhattan (aka Washington Heights), had the brilliant idea to go roller skating at Empire rink in Brooklyn before they close next month. It’s seriously the LAST roller rink around. Even CitySearch doesn’t show ANY other roller rinks. It was heartbreaking because there were so many neighborhood kids and now they’ll have one less option for fun, safe things to do in tha ‘hood. There were a bunch of people outside when we arrived, protesting the closure. I really hope someone steps up and replaces it with a new rink. Is there a Magic Johnson of Brooklyn? Everyone there was so happy, it was awesome.
