Even though everyone knows truth about hot dogs, we must bid a farewell to the 8th Street Gray’s Papaya. See, before the dollar slice boom of the late 2000s (pre-Mamani’s, Pre-Two Bros.), the familiar dilemma of skateboarding all day and trying to eat for under $4 was far more difficult. It was perfectly reasonable to skate crosstown from Tompkins to get the special at Gray’s. The kids have it way easier these days.

A video interview with Danny Supa, one of history’s greatest backside flippers. He talks about Dead End, Tree Fort, etc.
Here’s a brief HD bro cam edit from Johnny Wilson and friends.
“Everyone that’s attractive seems to have some dolt boyfriend, or is literally made out of garbage.”
