It's the streets near the university that're the worst. That and cabs
and/or tour buses along Pennsylvania. I'd imagine Dupont on skates is
certainly a skill to develop.
Skating the whitehurst would certainly offer a nice view. But the
concrete there would be a little rough on the inline wheels, as opposed
to asphalt. But underneath it has improved too, with a paver path along
the waterfront. Not for bikes though, but a lot nicer than the ratty
parking lots that used to be down there. They're apparently putting an
ice rink down there too.
