5050 Skatepark helps with making Face Shields for First Responders and Nurses

As we have all heard on the news, our first responders are short on essential supplies. So when we heard our friend Michael Perina of Assembly 3D Printing created a gofundme to use his skills of 3D printing to create face shields for our frontline workers, we jumped at the opportunity to help.

We have a CNC Machine and Laser Cutter that we normally use to cut out wood ramps, but now we repurposed them to cut Pet-G for the face shields. The skatepark has been transformed into an assemble and packaging factory with the help of Youth Build Staten Island. Check out photos below.

Share and donate if you can. The more we can raise, the more face shields we can make. 

Everyday we are producing 300 shields with plans to increase to 1,000 per day! 

We still need help getting more materials! A big thank you to everyone that has supported this campaign already. 

Every dollar donated will go towards making as many shields as possible!

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.

“Staten Island Skateboarder Grinds it Out as Real Estate Agent”

“STATEN ISLAND — He’s been named the city’s best amateur skateboarder, has a prestigious sponsorship deal with DC shoes and has been featured in Transworld Skateboarding magazine.

But instead of skating on the pro-circuit, Staten Islander Leo Heinert, 23, spends his days showing New Yorkers Brooklyn apartments.

Since his mother moved back to Ecuador, Heinert has been working as a real estate agent for Nooklyn to pay for the mortgage of his Westerleigh home.

When he’s not skating, he’s showing homes in neighborhoods like Greenpoint, Williamsburg and Bed-Stuy.” -Nicholas Rizzi DNA Info

Staten Island

There’s only one way to arrive at this borough and that’s on the iconic bright orange Staten Island Ferry, which offers fantastic views of the Statue of Liberty as it sails past.

Staten Island is a peaceful area away from the busy city mainland of New York. Here visitors will find all things from NYC’s history, with museums and historic homes dedicated to preserving the past. That’s not to say that Staten Island is lost in time, in fact the borough is changing rapidly. The entire waterfront is under development and in the coming year there are plans to build a string of hotels, restaurants and outlet malls as well as the globe’s largest observation wheel. These additions are set to modernise traditional Staten Island.

One place already providing 21st century fun is 5050 Skatepark, the only indoor facility where would-be pro skateboarders can practise their moves and check out the competition in the Stapleton neighbourhood. 5050 Skatepark’s Angelica says the area has a lot to offer tourists. “Stapleton is a hub for arts and culture, with many small restaurants, café shops, and bars and an artist gallery,” she explains. If your youngsters are new to alternative sports, the team at 5050 Skatepark offer one-on-one lessons to get them ruling the ramps in no time.

More fun awaits kids at Staten Island Children’s Museum, where creativity and curiosity are nurtured to help children learn about the world around them through a range of interactive activities. The fun and games include a green living room, where your child will discover how Earth-friendly low carbon wind energy works, or dress the part and become a firefighter learning to use all the right gear. The museum is housed in the island’s Snug Harbour Cultural Center & Botanical Garden, a unique venue converted from the first home for retired sailors in the US into a buzzing regional arts centre. Combining creativity with a horticultural mission and a heaving calendar of upcoming events, the attraction has plenty to see and do for those visiting the borough.
