A popular monthly Skate Albany program created the idea to put a skateboard park inside the Noteworthy Resources community center. But it wouldn't be easy and they still have a lot of work and fundraising to do.

What is Noteworthy Resources?

The non-profit Noteworthy Resources started Skate Albany which began in 2020 as a way for people to meet up and socialize. It turned into a monthly skate along with lessons. So the organization wants to make sure there is a place to go in the winter months. Noteworthy Resources also has support groups, workshops, and events like business seminars, clothing swaps, and self-esteem programs for students inside their new community center.

Tatiana Gjergji who is the founder and executive director of Noteworthy Resources didn't think that the warehouse space was big enough to fit an indoor skate park according to the Times Union. But she was determined to find a way. They have begun to build the framework of the skate park that will be called Endure Skate Park. They hope it will be open in mid-October but they need funding.

A Fundraiser is Being Held This Month

They hope to attract investors at the Adopt-A-Ramp Skate Soiree on August 20th. This fundraiser will take place at 930 Broadway in Albany and tickets are $125. There will be live music, food, drinks, and raffles, and it will feature five local artists using recycled material from the skate bowl. They will create their own art that has the theme of endurance to coincide with the new skate park name.

TLC show 'American Chopper' Orange County Choppers Headquarters in Newburgh Abandoned & For Sale

WARNING: Under no circumstances should you enter this property. By doing so you risk bodily harm and/or prosecution for trespassing on private property.
In 2003, a father-son business reality show hit the Discovery Channel. It was called American Chopper and it followed the custom motorcycle building business of the Teutul family out of Newburgh, NY. Paul Sr. owned the shop with sons Paul Jr and Mikey working in the business. There was a slew of cast and characters. The center of the show wasn't just the amazing custom motorcycles built for celebrities and others, it was the volatile relationship between Sr. and Jr. The show ran for 12 seasons before the two could no longer get along. It ended up in lawsuits and the two not talking for ten plus years. In the past few years, the business moved to Florida. This left the 61,000-square-foot headquarters for sale and abandoned. Take a look at what remains of Ocean County Choppers.
