chrome ball incident #299: club fade









"There are 8 million stories in the Naked City..."

A by-no-means-complete assortment of classic late 80's/early 90's NYC shit.

Consider this volume one.

Celebrating Chrome Ball Incident #300 next week.... can't believe it myself.

That 89 NYC cover was my first Thrasher. Damn I am old.

Thanks for the memories, and that young Harold pic.

That young Harold pic is great. I'm going to NYC at the end of Aug 8^)

There was one Ari Marcopolous spread in transworld that was awesome. iirc, portrait of Jovontae and Pang and a Hunter heel flip.

Those pix are so dope. I was obsessed with the NYC skate scene. Mike Kepper's ad was the SHIZZNIZZZ.
However, those pix are proof that It is damn hard to find pix of the Harlem Banks!!!!!

watched bag off suck for the first time. 2007ish. Then I busted my knee up on those white tile banks Coney Island...missing tile on the hip I never went down before. I kept trying to skate with a really swoll knee. then we went to the village and ate tacos. Jerry Hsu walked by the window, looked at our boards and kept walking. have you seen his youth footage? Holy cow.
