While wrapping up filming with Jesus Medina for an upcoming Pier 25 edit, Billy Gonzalez, Jash Ruiz, Ruben Perez, and more bladers joined in on the session as we made our way out the park. We went to the “Monkey Ledges” before getting kicked out and went to a nearby rail that Jash led us to. Check out the clips I managed to get from one of the many weekly sessions that go down in New York City. Featuring in order of appearance: Jesus Medina, Billy Gonzalez, Jash Ruiz and Ruben Perez.

Shooting The Banner: With Chauncey Jenkins

February 27, 2012

Last week Chauncey Jenkins and other Washington Heights bladers came to the Sunset Park area of Brooklyn, thanks to a session set up by James Perez. James called me with the info and I headed out to Sunset to meet up with everyone. We warmed up at the 35th street ledges then moved on to the kink rail in the local park. While Chauncey was warming up I was able to grab a few photos and this clip of him clearing the kink rail for the latest I Roll NY banner.

See the previous banner shoot with Danny Figgz.

Filming with Jesus Medina

February 24, 2012

We all know today sucks. It’s been raining all day and everyone’s bragging about being at Bitter Cold where they’re sitting with a bunch of strange men getting drunk doing borderline homosexual activities they’ll be scared to tell their grandchildren about. But I digress, yesterday was awesome. If you didn’t have any responsibilities or obligations and you had the ability to maneuver your fat feet into your rollerblades then you should’ve been out blading. 60 degree weather in NYC is awesome by itself, but 60 degree weather in the middle of February is even more awesome. It’s something I like to call “awesomore.”

Jordan Baez I Roll NY Online Profile

February 16, 2012

I Roll NY premieres it’s first ever online profile. Our first profile features Jordan Baez, a local blader from the Lower East Side of Manhattan that has been gaining attention and popularity within our scene. Jordan doesn’t fit the typical stigma of NYC blading and we wanted to showcase his talents to the rollerblading world that still has the early years image of NYC blading. This is a look into the resurgence of New York City rollerblading. Youtube link after the jump. Filmed/Edited by Craig Benabu. Additional footage: Joey Rojas.

Coleman (L.E.S.) Skatepark 2012 Revamp

February 15, 2012

“The skate park under the Manhattan Bridge aka Chinatown/LES Skate Park on our block is due for a complete renovation next year! The HAO/Holm Architecture Office won the design bid for the project and the new park will be funded by Architecture for Humanity and a Nike Gamechanger’s grant…the development of the new park that will be known as “Coleman Oval Skate Park.” With the recent loss of the nearby, historic Brooklyn Banks, we feel that this “revamp” is long overdue. In addition to a brand new skate park, the new design includes a dog-run with a view, upgraded baseball field, new playground, an urban gallery (sounds like legal walls), and new board game benches. See the layout plans of the space below:

“New York has more film festivals than any other city in the world. Throughout the summer, independent and established film festivals show screenings under the bridge. Summer concerts includes locals and national bands celebrating the coolest music venue in the city while, on select days, the part and skate park combines to create the Coleman Oval Market for furniture, food and festivities.” This is a great idea but we’re not sure if anyone factored in the constant loud roar of the train overhead during these concerts and screenings” – Klughaus Galley.
