NYC legend RB Umalli sets the record straight in this interview from TWS and comes through with a few clips at the banks featuring Ron Deily, Akira Mowatt, and Spencer Fujimoto.
Spoiler Alert: The Banks are NOT officially skateable again. However, you can voice your opinion at the NYC Park Maintenance website and file a complaint. Get on it!
