East River Park About to Get EXXXXXXXtreme

New, 8 comments

The little league fields of East River Park are mostly devoid of any and all signs of life during the bitter winter months, but our friends at Red Bull?energy drink/total immersion lifestyle?have figured out a way to inject some attitude (and potentially horrific injuries) into the under-utilized parkland: giant snowboarding jump! On February 5th the crazy rendering seen above will become flesh, as Red Bull's "Snowscrapers" event takes over East River Park at Houston Street?with a performance by Anthrax and what we imagine will be a Radio City Christmas Spectacular season's worth of fake snow. Do check out this video, in which a pair of brahs stand in the park and explain the construction of the ramp-to-be ("It's about double the height of these trees behind me"). Bitchin'.
