THE SESSION AT THE DEAL LAKE SKATE POOL

The Deal Lake skate pool is the stuff of legend. Located on the north side of Asbury Park, the pool was discovered during a time when the city was littered with abandoned buildings ripe for the taking. Anchor contributor Shawn Zappo opens up about the first time the pool was skated.

“Sometime in the summer of 1995 white trash wizard Donny Binaco discovered the soon to be infamous Deal Lake Pool. A few days later Don, his brother Brian and I were cleaning the debris out of the base.”

“We painstakingly drained the sludge filled water and then poured soda on the walls to make them grippy. This is a photo taken of me with a disposable camera on the day of our first session.”
