32. New York: Labor

Competition is stiff for best shop in NYC but all around New York you see skaters with Labor stickers on their boards, an indication of Labor's street level support by real skaters. It is not uncommon to see visiting pros checking in at Labor to set up a board and connect with their crew. Colin Read, the filmer behind Tengu: God of Mischief says, “Labor is central, right in the LES, and is the meetup spot for so many crews.” Owner James Rewolinski is the kind of guy who will order a bunch of pizzas on a Sunday afternoon just ’cause. It is this kind of attitude, and the many events Labor supports, that make this newer shop the best shop in New York’s competitive scene.
