A student of philosophy and art at Skidmore College, Cole Giordano now works in the fields of photography, drawing/illustration, design, and modeling, and dabbles in writing. A die hard punk rock fan, Cole has also been playing in bands that can be heard around the New York area for the past 5 years, and continues to do so.

Recently the pool, or bowl, at the skatepark in Saratoga Springs, NY was filled with dirt and rendered un-skateable. The city claimed they were forced to cut park employees and the pool was deemed too hazardous to be part of the new “skate at your own risk” policy. Since then, local skaters and the people of the town have been trying to get the city to remove the dirt from the pool, even offering to dig it out themselves. It’s one of the oldest pools on the East Coast, and as a skater from New York I know how rare and special it is to have access to one (there are only a handful more in the Northeast even now). With the exponential increase of popularity and interest in skateboarding over the past few years, removing the bowl is like removing a soccer or baseball field from a public park. Please visit Save the Skatepark for more information, or better yet, sign the petition to have the dirt removed. Here are some photos I took of the bowl at the park while at school in Saratoga:
