At high noon on Halloween, trouble was brewing. A crowd began to gather around the unusual spectacle in Union Square. From the looks of things, it appeared Mickey Mouse would join forces with a heavily bearded rabbi, a kung-fu master, a mime and a gorilla in a tie…This unlikely team of super freaks was accompanied by about 15 assorted costumed skateboard punks, and two bikers incognito… The Halloween Skate 2009 was surely to be a day to remember. We took off and circumnavigated all of mid-downtown Manhattan. It was an epic skate.. . during this skate I began to realize how hot it can get inside of a cheaply made gorilla suit. But a little, or in my case a whole lot of sweating, was a necessary sacrifice for the joy and terror we brought to thousands of unsuspecting tourists and denizens of this fine apple. It was one of my favorite Halloweens of all time.
