Rebranding of Downtown Staten Island

This week the Chamber of Commerce held an event at the St. George Theater in Staten Island to announce the rebranding of Downtown Staten Island.  This rebranding comes with new development in the area surrounding the ferry in hopes to bring in more new businesses as well as more foot traffic to the area.  NYDAC, along with 5050 Skatepark, built and donated this photo opp of the new Downtown Staten Island logo for the event which was a huge hit among attendees.


Philip Plein X Red Bull UFO

For New York fashion week, Philip Plein partnered up with Red Bull to make something special and unique for their fashion show.  Philip Plein was bringing in a huge UFO and Red Bull had the idea to bring in a Red Bull cooler modeled to look like the real UFO in the fashion show.  With a quick turnaround of only 2 days, Red Bull new it was a perfect job for NYDAC.

We constructed the 4 foot tall, 6 foot wide cooler mainly out of wood and plexi glass.  Inside the UFO was LED lighting shining up through the plexiglass as well as 8 speakers with an aux chord to play music.  With some black paint and some Philip Plein logos to finish it off, the UFO was ready to serve up some Red Bull and some tunes for NY Fashion Week in just under 2 days.



No Ends: Denver

A few weeks ago we set out on our first road trip of the year for No Ends: Denver held by Doperoots. We were hired to build a small skatepark inside the venue for professional and AM skaters to come skate during the concert. At the end of the day the music was great, the skaters loved our setup, and all the attendees got to see a great show! Check out our pictures below and keep an eye out for the next location for No Ends!


Hayden 5 Studios

We’ve been back in Hayden Media’s studio again redoing their offices and we just finished up!  After remodeling their main studio room last Winter, they wanted to have their offices match the look of their studio.  The wood floors got a total refurbish as well as all the window sills.  In attempt to mimic the studio, we also added reclaimed lumber above the window as well as the column in the middle of the room.  Check out the final look of Hayden 5’s office below!


Meadows Festival 2017 with NYDAC

Another year down at Citi Field with The Meadows fest crew! For the second year in a row, NYDAC had the opportunity to work at the Meadows Music and Arts festival in Queens, NY. Yet again, the festival was a huge hit and giant success.                          Check out the video of some of our work and we’ll see you next year!

Reebok/Journey’s Club C Carnival Tent at EST Fest

It was NYDAC’s first time at EST FEST and it was so much fun! We helped build Reebok/Journey’s Club C Carnival tent and outfitted it out with some games for festival attendees. If they won the game, they won a pair of Reebok Classics! Check out some pictures from the weekend

Hayden 5 studio

Over the winter NYDAC was working hard in Hayden 5 Media’s photo studio.  During our time there we rebuilt their photo cyc, stained and finished their hardwood floors, added a reclaimed wall, and dressed up all the windows and the kitchen wall with reclaimed wood as well.  Take a look at the photos of the finished product!



Zumiez x Addidas host #SkateTheLoftNYC

Words by Ed Pollio:

When I was 10 years old my step father was a cab driver for Wadsworth Cab Service.  
I would go with him as he drove the cab around Staten Island picking up passengers.
Once every week my step father drove a man to NYC who worked at Webster Hall.  During each trip
I would overhear crazy stories based around this mysterious place.  Every week the man would come back with a new, wild story about something that had happened there.  The man and my step father spoke like 2 adults would normally speak to each other, barely acknowledging how bizarre the stories were.  As a little boy, this made me both amazed and terrified.  As soon as I could go to a show at Webster, I would.
Years later I finally got to see my first show there, which was Atmosphere.  Being able to attend a concert at a venue where both my parents spent some of their childhood was awesome, but almost weird at the same time.  It was great knowing some history before ever being at the venue.
If you would have told me back then that one day I would be building a skatepark in the illustrious Webster Hall, I would have told you that you were insane.  However, Zumiez made the project a reality for us.
Here is a video below of my great team working along with the amazing crew at Webster Hall building the #skateloftnyc for Zumiez and Addias. Thanks to Joe Fontaine and Christian Villacres for hiring us and adding to my amazing memories at Webster Hall.  One day I hope my children can enjoy Webster Hall as me and my parents have.
