5 On Flat With Leo Heinert

“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

Tommy Gillette and Aidan Sanchez-Campo “Locals Only” Remix

The first time I ever went to the Ben Soto Skatepark in Staten Island, I met Aidan, and six years later, at my last time at 5050 Skatepark, Aidan was with me. Although he scooters and I skate, Aidan has been my best friend throughout my time living in Staten Island. It’s crazy how a skatepark brings people together for the same reason, and its crazy how much the skatepark can impact ones life. The friends you make at the skatepark will be your best friends no matter how close or far away you are from them, for the rest of your life.
