How do you get all NY City park goals, gaps, and objectives in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2? Where are all the SKATE letters, subway cards, hydrants, and hidden tapes in NY City? As part of our Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 guide, we’re going to tell you how to get all the goals, gaps, and objectives in NY City.
All NY City Gaps and Goals in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2
Here’s how to get all goals, gaps, and other objectives in NY City.
High Score, Pro Score, Sick Score, High Combo
To get these four park goals, you need to beat the following scores within the two minute time limit.
- High Score – 20,000
- Pro Score – 90,000
- Sick Score – 150,000
- High Combo – 15,000 (in one combo)
You need to collect the letters that make up the word “SKATE”. They’re scattered throughout the level. Here’s where you’ll find them:
- S — Just ahead of where you start, above the park entrance on the left
- K — Go down into the park. To the right is a large fountain and a big quarter pipe with the K above
- A — Above the large fountain in the same area. Use the edge of the fountain to ramp up
- T — Back up out of this fountain area and head left. The T is above a rail
- E — The E is nearby above a quarter pipe to the left
Collect 5 Subway Cards
There are five subway cards in NY City. Locate them all to complete this park goal. You need to collect these to access the subway section of the level.
- From the start position, turn around and enter the park. There’s a large rock that leads to a subway card in the air
- From there, go straight ahead and across the bridge to find the next subway card
- The next subway card is over the bridge above a rail
- As you exit the park, the next subway card is above the quarter pipe straight ahead
- Opposite this quarter pipe is a large ramp back into the park. Use this ramp to grab the last subway card that’s hovering in the air
Once you have all five, you’ll permanently unlock access to the subway station, accessed via the escalator.
Ollie the Hydrants
There are three fire hydrants in NY City. You just need to ollie over each one to complete this park goal. Here’s where you’ll find them all:
- From your starting position, turn around and head down the road to the left. There’s a hydrant on the pavement on the left
- From the start position, head straight and take a right at the junction. Another hydrant is at the end of the road on the right
- From the above location, turn around and head straight down the road. The final hydrant is on the right half way down
Grind Subway Rails
To get this park goal, you must unlock access to the subway by collecting the subway cards (see above).
Get up to the subway station. Grind one of the rails all the way down to the other side in one go.
50-50 Joey’s Sculpture
From the starting position, turn to the right and you’ll see the top of Joey’s Sculpture — a large triangular structure. Do a 50-50 grind (Triangle) on it.
Get the Secret Tape
Use the subway tracks to get down to the banks part of the level. Go to the right so the grassy bank is on your left. There’s a concrete path leading up to the left. At the top, you need to grind the rail to the right, then hop to another rail on the left, grind to the end, and jump off to get the secret tape.
These are not related to any park goals, but there are four stat points to collect in NY City. Two require that you unlock the subway by getting all the subway cards (see above).
- From where you start, turn right and go down into the courtyard. There’s a large quarter pipe up the side of a building with a stat point above
- From where you start, turn right and go to the right of the lower courtyard. You’ll see the next stat point above a quarter pipe against a building
- Use the subway tracks to get down to the lower part of the level. Go to the right so the grassy bank is on your left. There’s a path leading up to the left — jump over this to find a stat point above a quarter pipe
- Go out into the paved area and follow it all the way down. On the right-hand side you’ll see the last stat point above a quarter pipe
Vicarious Visions Logo
There’s a hidden Vicarious Visions logo in each level. It looks like two letter Vs stacked on top of each other. Here’s where the Vicarious Visions logo is in NY City.
This requires that you find all the subway cards first. Once you have, go up the escalator to the subway station. Hop onto the tracks, heading left. Once you’re past the left-hand wall, you’ll be able to drop down onto an awning. Do this and you’ll see the logo ahead.
From the starting position, turn to the right to see the building that says Upper Bank. Go down to the courtyard below and turn around to find a quarter pipe. Go behind it to find the alien plushie.
