Wednesday night there was a meeting held at the Haven Arts gallery in the Bronx, NY (speaking of, if you’re looking for a warm place to skate from 6pm-10pm you should go and session the box and prails there.) where most of the companies based in New York discussed what the future holds for rollerblading in our area. A lot of important issues were brought up and decisions were made to help everyone stay in contact with each other and use each of our resources to not only help ourselves individually but to help our community and to bring back New York as a major staple in the rollerblading industry. Besides our discussion, Chris and Courtney Brown of B. Unique, gave us a preview of their Freestyle Rolling campaign which honestly will change every naysayers mind and will hopefully unite us and give us one definitive term. I would go into more detail but I wouldn’t do it justice. They also gave us a sneak peak of what they’re personally working on to help our community. As well, photographer Angelo Ferrer gave out a few copies of his newly printed magazine where he’s showcasing all of nyc’s best rollerbladers using his exclusive photography skills.
