In honor of the weather this past weekend, nighttime skateboarding was kept close to home, instead of on a seventy-mile ride north to skate Connecticut’s superior brand of ledges, which is what the typical weekend evening protocol tends to be around here. The night was something special, given that Midtown presented itself in 2003 form, with packs of roaming kids (more than usual for a Saturday) taking turns getting kicked out of Paine Webber and Ziegfeld in five minute intervals. Seeking refuge, we made it over to the eastside, got kicked out of everywhere on Park in under five minutes due to the fact that the other packs of kids put security on their toes five minutes prior, and managed to stay at the chain gap across from the Lipstick Building on the Japanese block for a solid hour. That’s the only spot in Midtown you don’t get kicked out of — the 53rd Street chain gap. Sad.
Oh, there was a mini rave going on at Paine Webber as well.
We made it back over to the westside late enough to not get kicked out and filmed this quick homie cam clip over there. Lots of stock tricks and shaking, but by some miraculous stroke of fate, there is no dirt on the lens.
