Brooklyn Banks Week - Quarter Snacks

Recommended Posts

Since moving to New York City in 2006 I have been able to rely on one website as my guide to skateboaridng in the city. QuarterSnacks.com, the finest site for your guide to skateboarding. Quartersnacks provides everything from a spot list, videos, and some of the best articles. This whole week is Brooklyn Banks week. so check the site the rest of the week and learn a little something about one of the most iconic spots in skateboarding.

been on that tip since 06 as well.

 

funny website too for the most part.

 

DIY feel in a city that everyone has a skateboard.

 

However, them dudes are fucking degenerates.

 

Pure hilarity.

That's not spam, he's just posting about a site he likes. If that's spam, then most of you are guilty of spamming on here.

 

bkphoto is good people and probably skates better than most of you.

I also remember in the early 90's when World Industries was at it's peak (before being a mall brand), Big Brother covered a contest Rocco put on at the Brooklyn Banks. I think some of the footage from that video ended up in Big Brother's "SHIT" video. What I remember was Rocco was handing out big money to kids who landed the tricks he called out on the big set, Weeman (or some other midget skater) killed a giant sewer rat with his board, kids were attacking the busses with wet mops, and a huge fight broke out over some girl where a bunch of kids beat the shit out of a couple other kids with their boards.

 

Anyone on here remember this? Maybe you can tell it better. My memory is just from reading it and it's kind of blurry.

The original Powell elephant board was the shit back in the day, but this one was a turning point in skateboarding.

I've read it a few more times and it still sounds like an advertisement to me.

 

Not much different than the one about vibram five finger shoes the other day except his name is orange.
