Ed Pollio interview by Scott marceau for the The Come Up

angelica-and-ed

Ed Pollio might not be a household name, but without him, there might not be a house in which to hold anything, especially in New York City. For those of you who know Ed already, there’s no need to read this first paragraph- you already know he’s the friendliest guy, maybe ever, anywhere. He’s never not smiling and always willing to lend a helping hand. He is constantly building something, tinkering, laughing or talking up anyone who is around for a good conversation. He knows what he loves and he loves what he does. The things that Ed has done for BMX in New York City are pivotal and important (e.g. creating the only indoor skatepark in NYC) but go largely unnoticed because of Staten Island’s physical disconnection from the mainland boroughs.

If there’s one thing that Ed is truly passionate about, it’s passion. He wants to see people enjoying what they’re doing at all times and building 5050 Skatepark from the ground up was a great way to assure that he’d always be surrounded by fun and progression. When he’s not at the helm there, his wife Angelica- and Jasper the dog- are the ones greeting you at the door with a gregarious attitude which, when combined with Ed’s, makes 5050 feel like a home away from home (but sometimes a bustling daycare center). You’d be hard pressed to find a more welcoming place in Staten Island. And speaking of combining Ed and Angelica, they just added a healthy baby girl to their family…
