[Video]: Skateboarding in 1980's NYC

Nothing makes me want to return to my parents' living room with Tony Hawk's Pro Skater for Playstation like watching this YouTube video of dudes skating around NYC in the 1980's.

The uploader of the vid had this to say about it:  "In the 80s, this is what street skating was often like: just a bunch of guys ripping down the street, crashing into things and generally having a blast. Along with the Bones Brigade, that's Christian Hosoi in there with the green hair, along with Dave Hackett (acid-dropping off a semi truck), Ian Frahm (ollieing up onto the wall at the Brooklyn Bridge banks—big trick at the time) and some other NYC locals."
