FREE BRAKING LESSONS and Safety Techniques. Learn to use your heel brake. We operate a Stopping Clinic on West 72nd Street, where Skate Patrollers give free lessons on how to use the heel brake. The clinic is located just inside the West 72nd Street entrance to the Park - next to Strawberry Field Entrance. Come and learn to stop or improve your technique.
