Save the banks!

Last weekend was the "Save The Banks Jam" at the soon to be closed Brooklyn Banks. Presented by Fuel TV, hundreds of people showed up to skate, bike and chill at the coveted spot and to pay their respects to one of the best skate/BMX locales in NYC. For over two decades many have religiously met up there for sessions and bragging rights, and has been featured in just about every skate video. The NYC DOT is supposedly using the Banks as a staging area for construction of the Brooklyn Bridge which won't be completed till 2014. Read about that here and check out this great video of last weekends jam below.
