Didn’t they try that on Lancaster blvd? First blow there, was kicking the artists out of their display gallery, and renting the space to a Pharmacy Skateboard Shop. It was perfect for skaters with all the concrete parking structure underneath the first floor of apartments. Hopefully Palmdale doesn’t do that too in some budget shortfall.
No, it’s still there Random Stranger.
