Most people associate the earliest skate scene in NYC with Harold Hunter, and rightfully so. But there were others amongst him as well that paved the way for today. The other day someone sent us a link to some youtube videos of some classic skate footage from NYC in the late 8o’s early 90’s. One of them was called “Apple Juice“, a mini-documentary by Skate NYC. The documentary was given life again with the help of Matt Bass over at Sk8 Face who discovered it deep in storage. Skate NYC was one of the first skate shops that opened up in the city. In operation from 1986 to 1990 on Avenue A and 9th. Directly next to Tompkins Square park, which to this day is still one of the main meet up spots for skateboarders. The documentary shows off a little bit of the inside of the skate shop, cruising through downtown and the chaos that was a weekend event at the Brooklyn Banks. The film features Harold Hunter, John Carter, Steve Lavergne, Luis Rodrigues, Mike Ming, Jake Aalls, Cosmo Singer, SAS, John Bruce. Enjoy!
