DEATHBOWL TO DOWNTOWN "Soul Artists"
The Souls Artists were the original grafitti crew from the Upper West Side of Manhattan who spawned New York's first skate crew in the 70's called Zoo York. This segment is a good history lesson about what the city was like back in the day.
Basically, Deathbowl to Downtown is about street skating in New York, but it's also an anthropological overview of skateboarding's evolution from the parks and pools of the 70's, to the backyard ramps of the 80's, to the streets in the 90's, as seen from a New York-centric perspective.
