While going through the I Roll NY facebook page I came across this great photo posted last night. According to NYC legend Jose Disla a new set of ledges have been built in the Corona/Flushing area of Queens, NY. The spot looks great and the floor looks extremely smooth. No exact info on where the ledge is at as of now but time will tell. For now check out the dope photo above of Jose lacing a fishbrain on the top ledge. Photo by Cesar Macay.

UPDATE: The ledge(s) are located on Roosevelt Ave & 99th St, Queens, NY 11368.

This throwback photo of Angelo Ferrer resurfaced today via Facebook. If i’m not mistaken (which I am) this took place during one of the East Coast True Skate Competition’s or ECTSC’s while Angelo was also filming for one of Tom Lipani’s videos. “Ryan Schude came to NYC to shoot for Daily Bread and during his visit we bumped into him while filming for Elegance. I was doing a disaster topsoul on the flushing kink, I never knew or got to see what happen to the picture, 4 yrs have gone by and thanks to Ryan for not forgetting…” Angelo Ferrer. See the clip at about 5:40 into this edit.
