PIE features Beacon Hill

The latest episode of the KCTS9 show PIE, with the theme “wheels,” visits Beacon Hill for two segments featuring local people and landmarks.

The first is an impressionistic “then and now” about the beautifully restored Fire Station 13, with views of Jefferson Park next door. See it here.

The second segment, “Old Guy Skateboarders,” also visits Jefferson Park, and finds that many skateboarders using the skate park aren’t the kids you might expect. Skaters in their 40s and 50s and even older are out there too. Some are returning to skating after taking time off for families and work, while others never stopped skating. See the segment here.
