Last Friday was Go Skateboarding Day. Nike celebrated in grand fashion buy constructing a barge and parking it in the Hudson River on the south end of the cruise ship terminal. The Nike SB skate team conducted a demo all evening. Here are a couple of snaps from the event.

Rag & Bone jumped the gun this season showing their fall/winter lineup a week before NYFW starts. It was nice to be on hand to wet the whistle for next week’s action.

Monday before Sandy on the West side of Manhattan

I wandered outside on the Monday before Hurricane Sandy smacked New York City. I didn’t dare to go too far from my house, so I just walked over to the esplanade in the 30’s. The Hudson was starting to overflow its banks, and it was raining like crazy… sideways. I thought that it was appropriate to process them all in high contrast monochrome.
