I have no data to support this, but the marble at Pulaski increases one’s pop by 30 to 40 percent. However, if you inspect it closely, you’ll see a map etched into the blocks — a street plan of Washington, D.C. A.K.A. The L’Enfant Plan.
After conducting some rudimentary internet research, I found that L’Enfant, an engineer during the Revolutionary War, volunteered for the job and faxed his resume (the 1700’s version, naturally) to George Washington.
Of course, he got the job.
L’Enfant’s design brought a Euro flair to the new capital, deliberately building in a series of plazas. So, when you skate Pulaski you’re in the city, skating on a map of the city — an Inception-type scenario like the Las Vegas Raiders helmet or some shit.
ANYWAY, along the same lines, Kevin Augustine’s brand of ledge wizardry brings a flair to that world-famous speckled granite. We caught up with him on a recent trip to Puerto Rico and shot the shit about — among other things — coming up on the east coast, Call of Duty, and the life-cycle of a Dunk.
