We are massive admirers of Scumco & Sons. We’re hyped to present you their latest video ‘Upstate NY’ featuring crust shredding from Pittsburgh then up through Erie, Jamestown, Buffalo, Rochester and lastly Centralia (an abandoned mining town in Pennsylvania). Scumco & Sons affiliates: Kevin Taylor, Kyle Nicholson, Dave Abair, Ty Beall, Josh Narvaez and Javi Gutiérrez all feature in this video put together by Eric Calfo.
“Damn near every parking lot in Rochester, NY has a flatbar around the perimeter.
In the mid-19th century, there was a race to find the technology to extrude steel alloy in long sections without defects. In 1859, Phil Somers- founder and CEO of Monroe Piping & Sheet Metal in Rochester, claimed that he was abducted by aliens who supplied him with the information that his company was missing.
Monroe Piping & Sheet Metal would go on to become an integral supplier for the first transcontinental railroad, the First World War, and lo and behold- the Rochester Bureau of Parking. Rochester, NY is the home of the flatbar.”
