Friday night, while the East Coast was getting blanketed with snow, we opened up the House of Vans doors to our friends and family in New York to unveil our new Brooklyn Banks park redesign and host a Jonathan Mehring photo show of HOV images through the years. Everyone killed it so all night hard and the checking off of the NBD list got so heated that everyone stripped down to t-shirts. You wouldn’t even know it was the dead of winter.

Look for more upcoming House of Vans 50th anniversary events throughout the year here. Hopefully you can make it out one night and join us for a session.

Steve Caballero has been known to take some long distance boardslides in the streets but theres nothing more classic than watching Stevie take one around a corner in the pool. Just listen to the clacks of the tile!
