Some of you may remember a post of not too long back wherein I confessed to being a woefully inept skater in my now-quite-distant youth. Seriously, it was a skill I never even came close to mastering. I was hopeless.
In any case, my colleague Drew forwarded me another vintage clip of skaters tear-assing around New York City in 1985. Even if you’re not a fan of watching a bunch of teenage nogoodnicks terrorizing their fellow citizens with ill-advised feats of daring do, you should at least check it out for the fleeting footage of Manhattan locales. My favorite bit involves them skating beneath the marquee of Radio City Music Hall (which cites Supertramp and the Motels – quite a strange double-bill – as an upcoming performance). Enjoy.
