    I am doing a research project on Justin Herman Plaza. Does anyone have any info that they could pass along?

    Thanks in advance!

    Halprin. But the most interesting part of the plaza (to me) is that it is the birthplace of modern skateboard. Though they called
    it EMB. From about 1990 until about 1994 it was where anything innovative in skating took place. Basically a mecca where every
    skater dreamed of going. It had badass locals though who hated T-dogs. Anyways, it is legendary.

    Then it became a bust and was patrolled by cops all the time and then it was remodeled into its current state. Interestingly, Halprin said that he wasn’t consulted at all on the remodel.

    Mike –

    Are you still engaged in this project? I was formerly responsible for the management of Justin Herman Plaza and may be able to provide you some information in that regard.
