Dorian and Casey are spiritual adventurers who experiment with quantum physics in a Brooklyn BMX shop. The pair is hellbent on creating the philosopher’s stone of ultimate perfection by injecting it into technology in order to save human consciousness. When a BMX pro becomes a subject of one of their experiments, his conceptions of reality are uprooted and everyone may have gotten more than what they bargained for.

silive.com- Staten Island Ferry’s 200th Anniversary art show

Read the Whole Story here.

http://www.silive.com/news/2017/09/5050_skatepark_hosts_staten_is.html

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — 5050 Skatepark wished the Staten Island Ferry a happy 200th birthday by holding a fundraiser for a local hospital Saturday night in Stapleton.

The free event offered live music, food and featured dozens of paintings and photographs of Staten Island’s iconic boat — which were donated by numerous local artists.

Photographs and artwork were submitted by Vin Barone, Mark Blasko, Jozette Carter-Williams, Michael Defuri, Eric Isaksen, Kristopher Johnson, Nick Jones, Ryan Lavis, Scott Marceau, Maggie Rose Melito, Carol Mitteldorff, Don Arangio, Chad Rachman, Valentiono Scaramella, Michael Sent, Mike Shane, Virginia Sherry, Adam Smith, Sean Sweeney, Tabitha Leee Turchio and Scott Van Campen.

The goal of the night was to raise money for construction on Richmond University Medical Center’s (RUMC) new emergency room in West Brighton.

Eric Isaksen, an EMT at RUMC, helped organize the event along with 5050 co-founder Ed Pollio.

“This is something I feel really passionate about,” said Isaksen. “I love riding my bike here at 5050, I love photography, but most important is helping people that need better emergency health care on the North Shore.”

As for Pollio, anything that involves “showing off art” and “raising money for a hospital” is something he’ll always be a part of.

Visionary Summer Jam August 26th

NY Grands Bicycle Film Festival

The NY Grands has been a staple event in the New York City BMX scene for the past 6 years. The unpredictability of the New York City Streets makes this race not only a physical challenge, but also a mental test. In past years this event has brought many to ruins, (especially Hoder and an old lady) and only few to Glory: Dave Rodebaugh (RIP), Ratkid, Jon Lynn, and for the last two years, Tyrone Williams.

Who will be crowned the next champion? Join us Sunday, June 25th to witness the carnage.
