Last week on Chinese New Year, we met up with two local kids who grew up not far from New York’s Chinatown but had never seen Chinese New Year first hand. So we signed them out of school early and took them to see the real deal for the first time.

If you also like to keep your head up the high-priced butt of the NYC skate scene, you might know these kids, Kyota Umeki and King. They’re 15 and 14 years old, so skating around with young kids was a nice change of pace. It makes you remember the spontaneity of rolling around with your friends, hitting random non-spot spots, and yelling curse words to feel cool.

Watch our multicultural urban field trip above, and if you need any 30 year-old jaded creeps to chaperone your high school function, shoot us a fax. Jenkem is for the children!

jenkemmag – When word got out that NY was removing the majority of the original bricks from the Brooklyn Banks–for good this time–we couldn’t let these treasures be lost to the dustbin of history. In the deadest days of quarantine lock-down, we biked out to the Banks to get our hands on as many bricks as we could carry with the idea to send them out to the skaters that made them significant. Though it would’ve been sick to save wheelbarrows of bricks and send them out to every skater that’s ever done a wallride, we settled on four because they were damn heavy and it’s the thought that counts.
