Spring and summer in New York City, from two separate trips.
Tanner Lostan fs shuv in Manhattan. I think this spot is gone now.
I met up with my old friend James from Canada who was also visiting NYC. I spent a good part of my early 20s skateboarding with him.
James Abraham 5050.
The following day Allen invited me to Rockaway to swim and have dinner at his friend's place.
Allen let me borrow his waterproof camera. I accidentally exposed a roll of his, but it mostly came back fine.
Allen's friend Annelise lives in Rockaway.
I forget her name but she was Ukranian. I tried speaking to her in Ukranian but I only know a few words.
Everyone drank a bit too much.
The party decided to head to the beach.
We built a fire and set up camp.
Bryan DJ'd the whole night while we danced.
Bryan Derballa and Allen Ying.
We caught an hour or two of sleep before being woken up by the park ranger.
Allen Ying's butt and Evan Collisson. I've known Evan for over a decade through skateboarding. He moved to San Francisco the same month I did. We coincidentally crossed paths at this beach party.
These last two photographs are from Duke Riley's Fly By Night exhibit at the Brookyln Navy Yard. The artist strapped LEDs to hundreds of pigeons and trained them to fly around a docked ship.
Allen Ying picked me up one night in his new diesel Mercedes. He says it can run on vegitable oil alone. We went to a fancy art party and then dancing. He always has a pulse on good dance spots.
