Transworld Skateboarding just dropped the first video from their New York City skateboard-centric series NYC Rising. The piece features a nostalgic look at the yesteryears of Big Apple riding as seen through the eyes of city OG’s Peter Bici, Jeff Pang, Chris Keefe, Ryan Hickey, Mike Hernandez and Gio Estevez. Each respective interviewee gives his own take on what made legendary spots like The Brooklyn Banks and Astor Place such pivotal meeting spots for tri-state area skateboarders. The perspectives get real raw too as the nostalgic pioneers also recount the adventures and hustles that allowed them to survive and grow into the people that they are today. So much respect to this history!
