Stoops Magazine - A Quarterly NYC Skateboard Publication

Author: Mark Page Posted: 2014-03-21


New York is one of most photogenic cities in the world. Couple that with amazing and creative skateboarding and you will find it hard to beat the photos it will (and does!) produce. The problem is that there is no solid outlet for displaying these photos. You may get lucky to see a low-resolution version of one or two of them floating around some blogs, but is that sufficient? A lot of major European cities have their own mags to help represent their cities (Grey Magazine out of London, for example), so it's time that the world's city had its own. This would benefit many. For one, it would let outsiders into our world of skateboarding through one of the most chaotic cities. It would also help shine light on the local companies, filmmakers, photographers, and skaters that are pushing the boundaries with no mainstream support.

The "Destruction"

Author: Yusuf Saleh Posted: 2013-10-05
The Ranco skate park is being destroyed due to lack of use and need of space. For about a year we have been enjoying this park and now it comes to an end. I have talked to the manager about it and he said it is not possible to keep the skate park.

Our new mission is to find another skate park! So far i have found one, but still not sure how we can get into the compound. As soon as i get more details i will be sure to contact Mark Page. ;)

LoVE Park history & How Skateboarders adapt to the environment!

Author: Dustin Posted: 2013-08-22
Whether you're a long-time skater or not, you will recognize Robert Indiana's LoVE statue...and probably know that the original is in Philly - in a park called LOVE PARK (commonly, although that isn't actually it's real name).

But unless you grew up in Philly, you probably don't know the full story behind the park, its designer/creator, and the history behind the park's evolution (how it became a skate mecca, how "the man" tried to chase skaters off, and actually REDESIGNED the park to keep skaters out.... but don't worry, it didn't work!)

Check out this story on 99% Invisible.  Definitely worth a listen.
