No, skateboarding is not banned yet in Stuy Town. But it should be.
1) The cracking, slamming noise is probably the most obnoxious noise in Stuy Town and sure to disturb everyone's peace.
2) Skateboarding ruins steps and the sidewalks, or anything else a skateboarder may wish to play on.
Now, some would add a third reason: The safety of the skateboarders themselves. I've no such concerns, however. If you want to fracture one of your bones, go right ahead, just don't wake me up while you are doing it.
