At the end of each year we put out a survey asking our readers for their New York favorites. The 2013 survey closed on January 1st, 2014 and after taking a few weeks to review all the results we selected several winners to receive a box of free product. Big thanks to everyone who participated and congrats to our winners.

For 2013 it looks like the majority of skateboarders live in Brooklyn and for favorite spots Brooklyn spots got the most noise. Homage, Labor and Skate Brooklyn are the favorite 3 skate shops in New York. Luis Tolentino, Gino Iannucci and Harold Hunter (RIP) were favorite Pros out of NY. 5Boro was considered the favorite NY brand and also the NY skate brand that does most for the New York skateboarding community. People’s favorite NY skate vid or part was pretty spread out, no major winner there. Off the board people like to make videos, play music and shoot photography. Pizza wins favorite food with dumplings following up in second and Harold Hunter Day and Go Skateboarding Day got the most votes for favorite NY skate events.
