WANT TO PAY THE RANSOM BUT RETRIEVING THE FILES WOULD HAVE BEEN MORE COSTLY FOR THE DISTRICT. TURF WARS ARE BREWING. SKATE BOARDERS TAKING ON THE EAST VILLAGE AFTER LEARNING THE CITY WANTS TO CHANGE A TURF. Reporter: ALREADY LUKE RIZZO IS DISAPPOINTED WITH THE CITY’S PARK SYSTEM AFTER BEING HERE ONLY A WEEK. I ALWAYS WANTED TO SKATE AT THOMPKINS AND I JUST MOVED HERE. Reporter: THE NORTHWEST CORNER OF THOMPKINS PARK HAS BEEN A SANCTUARY, A SAFE PLACE FOR SKATERS TO CONGREGATE. IT IS SAFE FROM THE CARS. TAKING THIS AWAY IS A SLAP IN THE FACE TO SKATERS. SDMRFRMTHS A PLAN WILL CHANGE THE PROJECT FOR FLOOD PROTECTION. THE SOFTBALL AND BASEBALL TEAMS WILL HAVE NO PLACE TO GO SO THE CITY WANTS THEM TO SHARE THOMPKINS. I UNDERSTAND WE HAVE SKATE BOARDERS BUT SUPPOSED TO SPREAD THE LOVE AND SHARE. Reporter: ACCORDING TO PARK RULES, SKATEBOARDING IT REAL HERE. BOARDERS ARE COMPLG TOGETHER TO ASK TO KEEP THOMPKINS PARK THE WAY IT IS. IT ALREADY HAS 30,000 SIGNATURES. THERE ARE NOT THAT MANY PLACES TO GO FOR OTHER PEOPLE. IT INSPIRES PEOPLE TO GOING OUTSIDE AND SOCIALIZE. Reporter: ARTIFICIAL GRASS COULD SOON COVER UP THE PARK.

    Just go the skate park at Riverside Park at 108st. It has proper ramps and rails to do tricks.
