Olav Norheim: One Minute One Spot

We were in NYC for almost two weeks this summer. We had seen this spot with the grindbox that the local skaters had built and decided to check it out, and make Olav‘s edit for a “One Minute One Spot” right here. That’s how Norwegians explore a country on rollerblades.
