Inspired by the exhibition Clayton Patterson’s Front Door: Residents and Writers, Abrons Arts Center and Harold Hunter Foundation are thrilled to host a pop-up photobooth at LES Skate Park for Harold Hunter Day. Born and raised on the Lower East Side, the late Harold Hunter was a celebrated member of New York City’s skateboarding community. In tribute to his memory, Harold Hunter Day draws more than 1,000 skaters from around the world to LES Skate Park for contests, giveaways, and live music. Organized by the Harold Hunter Foundation, this annual skateboarding event honors Hunter’s impact and the skaters keeping his legacy alive.
The LES Skate Park is located under the Manhattan Bridge and adjacent to the Coleman Playground at 76 Monroe St.
