There’s nothing like looking back to days of old in skateboard history so watching this clip this morning was a pleasure. Apple Juice is an 8 minute documentary reporting on New York City’s skate scene in the late 80’s and early 90’s from Skate NYC, a skate shop that was based in the East Village from 1986-1991. The tapes have been laying dormant and were found under a pile of grip tape and paint markers in a storage space deep in NYC recently so get hyped on some NY skate history.
The footage includes skating from Harold Hunter, John Carter, Steve Lavergne, Luis Rodriguez, Mike Ming, Jake Aalls, Cosmo Singer, SAS, John Bruce and many more skating The World Trade Centre before it was taken out and more classic old NY spots. What a find.
