VIDEO: Skating into the New Year

Cambridge's Lynch Family Skatepark During Winter Months

Even during winter months, skaters of all ages and levels enjoy Cambridge's Lynch Family Skatepark tucked away at 0 Education St, Cambridge, MA 02141.

As long as temperatures are above freezing and there is no risk of frostbite, skaters say there is no reason not to. On Tuesday, December 19th it was warm enough to skate in a t-shirt.

The park has been open for just over two years now, and has a supportive, friendly vibe for skaters of all levels.

Deputy Superintendent Pauline Wells

I first laid eyes on DS Wells at the Senior Center in Central Square on election night. I was on the CCTV crew covering the election results, while she, along with the new police Commissioner, Branville G. Bard, Jr and several other police officers were on duty protecting the process.

Crowds flocked to the Sustainable Business Network of Massachusetts' Local Craft Spirits Festival Friday night to enjoy this event offering Massachusetts and New England based local craft distilled spirits, cider, artisan beverages as well as a bit of craft beer.

“Just a Kid from Cambridge”

When I saw my first one, I thought it was a sweatshirt that CRLS was handing out to the kids in one of its clubs. But then I started seeing more of them and not just on teenagers, but also on people of all ages. I am referring to the t-shirt/sweatshirt that proudly reads “Just a Kid from Cambridge.”
