Don't Be A Prick - Buy A Brick: "Brick by Brick" A Documentary on the Bethlehem Skateplaza

"Over the past 2 years we've been fortunate enough to skate on our skateplaza that was almost a 10 year collaboration between the City of Bethlehem and Homebase Skateshop.

This short documentary is meant to show people the positive effects of skateplazas/parks can have in the community if done correctly. As well as how you can support the growing project in Bethlehem.

Feel free to share this with your family, friends and local government. If it helps another group of skaters in a need of a legal place to continue doing what they love- then it's all been worthwhile.

This documentary was made with only good intentions but not necessarily good audio equipment. Please excuse the audio inconsistencies.
