Front Row Seats in 'Burg For
Red Bull Snowboarding Event
Grab your binoculars and your balaclavas and head on down to Grand Ferry Park at the foot of Grand Street! As of 3:30 pm there was wide-open unobstructed views of the Red Bull Snowscrapers event, just across the water in East River Park...for hardy (or heavily-medicated) snowboarding fans.
The East Side event features Shaun White, Pat Moore and Travis Rice plunging down a 9 story ramp built atop a Jenga-inspired tower of cargo containers. Long-time thrashers Anthrax will close out the show at 8:55 pm. But with the wind chill expected to be around six degrees this evening, there's not likely to be much competition for those riverfront benches.
