All eyes on NYC these days. Having been away from the place so long now I have to admit it being on my mind a lot as well. Here  is NYC’s Papo circa 1985 at The Barn in NJ…too cool

Papo was smooth like butter.  Those are Molly’s Skate Shorts with padded hips.  He gave me some red and white ones back in the day.  This cat was in all the Skates Mags back in the 1970’s.  He worked for the Ad Council in the 1980’s.  The Ad Council requires that PSAs promote positive social change in such areas as the quality of life for children, preventative health, education, community well being, and environmental preservation.  He is one of the many friends from NYC that came out and had a great time at the The Barn.  I’m sure that I was standing within a few feet of this perfect grind.  Papo is a very Cool Dude.  Great picture
