The New York Skate Series, now in its third year, held three events in the summer of 2016: First in Brooklyn, second in Staten Island, and lastly in the Bronx. Get comfy because this is a long one.
Watch as Adonis Taylor, Jesus Medina, Craig Benabu, and all the skaters/spectators involved take you through each event and relive some of the good times we all had in the process.

I got a chance to catch up with Eddie after the NYSS Continental Plaza event in Brooklyn and we talked about whipping together something quick and easy during the middle of the week. We met up in Bushwick along with Chris, made a few stops around the area, and finished the afternoon at the Gantry Plaza in LIC. Good vibes and cool skating– “It was a chill day today.” - butterTV.

The first event from NYSS in 2017 which takes place at Continental Army Plaza in Brooklyn, NY. The format has changed which added tons of small prizes anyone can win through multiple mini competitions. Overall it was small, fun, and filled with positive vibes.
