One of the most popular features of the multi-million-dollar renovation of Williamsburg's McCarren Park Pool is the planned skate park just to the east of the pool itself along Bayard Street. When we last took a peek at this shredder's paradise, it was little more than a pile of rubble and a dream. There's been some progress, but with budget cuts happening all over town, will the McCarren Pool redo get delayed? It appears the neighborhood's rebellious youth aren't waiting to find out. What, the Parks Department thought a flimsy little chain-link fence could keep them away?
