With the new year approaching, I was looking back in the archives to when I first moved East.
This is a collection of some of my favorite photos and time spent with friends from then till now.
Thanks for the support and encouragement, lets keep the good times rollin'!
A year or so after I met Tom, we used to meet up a couple of times a week and ride. This was the first time we went down to FDR skate park, I think it was around 8am. Locals here do not like bikes riding here, after the locals started to show up the bmxers started to leave. We kept riding for most of the day, taking photos trying new shit. As we were leaving, a couple locals came over that rode there track bikes to get to the park, gave us props and were amazed at what we were pulling.
In NYC you see this a lot! Abandoned, parted out bikes. This was one that stood out the most to me. Ape hanger bars, banana seat locked up wheels and a dura ace sticker.
Two of my favorite people, James Newman and Rob Salimo in San Fransisco . Notice Rob is on James's race T-shirt . Hopefully see ya guys soon!
New York is known for it's graffiti, and has influenced graffiti all over the world. I personally like the illegal work that is done well. This guy, to me, is a prime example of that. DCEVE Every piece I have seen on trucks, tunnels, and cutty locations is always on point. Check out his crews site here : http://www.smart-crew.com/
