The Empire Roller Skating Center in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn had its last skate this past Sunday. Said to be the birthplace of roller disco, the rink has long been a favorite destination for people of all ages. The site was also once a garage used by Ebbets Field, home of the Brooklyn Dodgers and has been used for skating since 1941. The site is set to become a self-storage facility.
