The whole LFS Crew will be there with clothing to sell and give away. 5050 Skatepark and LFS have made a collaboration t-shirts and stickers for the Jam.”
“Who woulda thought that nestled between the Stapleton Houses and the bleak waterfront of Staten Island would be New York City’s best indoor DIY skatepark? Not us so we trooped out to Shaolin to see 5050 Skatepark for ourselves. It turns out it’s true! But it won’t last for long so do yourself a favor and get there while you can. #SupportLocal on dose!

The guys at Animal Bikes threw at jam at 5050 Skatepark in New York recently. The park was packed full of riders and it looks like plenty of real good riding went down. Check out some highlights in this video, then check out some photos from that day by Chris Marshall over on the DIG site.
“Jams definitely help push BMX, are fun, and a great mix of all styles of riding. Especially rolling with your crew and meeting other riders are worth it alone, on top of the sick sessions that go down. I don’t ride or go to these things usually since there are too many people and I always run into someone and pop out a knee or hip, but besides having to watch out for people they are great. 5050 is a great mix of all kinds of obstacles and a real deal hardcore skatepark atmosphere. It is a great place to have for BMX in the winter in the NYC area plus a place to stay sane while there is snow on the ground. Get out and support it for the rest of the season if you did or didn’t make the jam either way. Thanks to all those who made it out and thanks to 50/50 for throwing it.” – Ralph Sinisi
