Memorial Day Weekend was a bummer, I had to stay in the city to study for finals. Still, I took a few breaks and enjoyed what the weekend had to offer. Firstly, watch my favorite team beat Man U: Next time you are in the East Village, check out the best Austrian food in the city at Eddie and the […]

It feels like New York City has been under the weather for over a week now! So much rain… I spent the entire week between being at school and doing homework. But whenever free time was available, if I couldn’t go and skate, I watched skate videos. I often go back to one of my favorites, is a video of Yaje […]

In June I am going to the Brazilian Amazon. As I was surfing the web and getting hyped for the trip, I came across a cool series done by Skateboarder Magazine and Converse, where a group of skaters travel in the Amazon. Besides enjoying to watch people like Kenny Anderson and Clint Peterson skate the Amazon, I also thought it […]

Friday night, I went to a Miki Doras concert. The drummer, Lars Merseburg, is a close friend of mine. And I also knew Ben Selby, the singer. Both Lars and Ben are surfers, and swim teachers at Imagine Swimming. This was my first time going to a club to see a live band, and I was allowed in because Lars […]

Congratulations Brook Peters! Today I went to see Brook’s documentary which played at the Tribeca Film Festival. Brook, who is 14-years-old, is a friend from nursery school, and PS 150. His film, The Second Day, is a touching and inspirational documentary about the students and educators at “Ground Zero” area schools who experienced first-hand the events of September 11, 2001 […]

Summer is on its way! And the major sign of it coming is the fact that I start to go to Montauk. On Friday, when school ended, I met my parents with our car loaded, my surf board on top, and headed to “the end.” That is how Montauk is also known: the end, as it is located at the […]

Friday after school is one of my favorite times of the week. It feels you’ve accomplished something because it is the end of school week, and … it is a time to hang out with friends, and skateboard. The Chelsea Piers Skate Park was built last summer, and like the Stuyvesant Street Plaza, it is part of Hudson River Parks. […]

BAM is for Brooklyn Academy of Music. And the BAM Harvey Theater, located on 651 Fulton Street in Brooklyn, is a great small theater that hosts international performances year-round. Its interior looks like decay, real. I really liked it. This weekend I went there with my parents to see Shakespeare’s Macbeth. The play was over two hours without intermission, and […]
