Wyatt Stevens (top row middle above) is a youth advocate for the skate community in the city of Newburgh, NY is asking for your support. If you’re not familiar with Newburgh it’s a small city not too far from the Big Apple and unfortunately is considered the Murder Capitol of New York State… it even landed in the top 10 most dangerous cities in the US. On a brighter note it was also home to the iconic Newburgh indoor skate park which appeared in many skate vids throughout the 90’s.

Lately there’s been an uprising of skateboarders within the community. What was just about 10 skaters has grown into a group of 60+ of all ages. This group is now trying their best to get a skate park built and have setup an online petition at Please make a few clicks to help them out, here’s the online petition link.
