Freeze Fame: Ryan Loewy #3

June 18, 2012

“Recently relocating to Queens, I have started to connect with bladers in the area. One of those bladers happens to be Joey Lunger, an 18 year old New Yorker with 6 years of blading under his belt. Joey caught my eye back in September at one of the box comps at LES, and again when I saw him in the Roachies edit. Intrigued and eager to shoot more blade photos, I hit Joey up to see what his schedule was like, and after learning he was a resident of Queens, we decided to meet at the Astoria Park under the bridge a few days later. After warming up a bit and grabbing a quick portrait, we began hitting the streets along the shoreline, stumbling upon this ledge. I fumbled around a bit, shooting a few different angles before settling on a dead on view of the ledge, positioning my flash accordingly. Joey began hitting the top ledge with some back royales, eventually upgrading to a smooth cross grab back torque, which you see above. We moved onto some rails and shot a bit more before calling it quits, but I was sufficiently pleased with the results and really look forward to working with Joey again, as well as exploring the various hidden gems of Queens that I know are out there” – Ryan Loewy.

Shooting The Banner: With Sebastian Michalski

June 11, 2012

The newest I Roll NY banner puts a new twist on an old spot. While out in the East Houston area of Manhattan we saw this huge pile of wood chips in the middle of the Sara D. Roosevelt park. With constant construction going on in the area, we went on a stealth mission, found a shovel, and went to work on making the hill of wood chips skateable. Take a look at Sebastian’s clip from the banner, as well as some of the behind the scenes footage from creating the spot.

Coleman Skatepark Construction Update

June 9, 2012

The Coleman skatepark aka L.E.S. skatepark is being rebuilt from scratch. All of the older obstacles have been taken out and replaced with newly built cement and metal copping obstacles. The park is rumored to re-open in July with an entirely brand new setup including a projection screen for film screenings.
