Today was the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Maloof Money Cup plaza in Queens, New York. It’s also the first MMC plaza that will be left behind and donated to the city of New York as a public skatepark after the contest. The skaters got to feel out the course and get their practice on in the muggy East Coast heat. The contest starts tomorrow so check back daily for video and photo updates! Check the heat sheets here.
