#LastDaysOfLove I took this photo exactly 5 years ago to the day, not a good photo but the excitement to stand in this spot was too real. I took a greyhound bus from Manhattan at 3 in the morning and arrived at Philadelphia's bus station in center city at 5am just before the sun came up, the FIRST thing I did was find the first person walking past me and asked "where's Love park?" The first two people didn't know what I was talking about until the 3rd was like "ohh.. You want directions to the love sign? That's at JFK plaza!" And pointed the way. I found if funny that all these years I had never heard of it referred to as JFK plaza I assumed the term given by skaters was the official name 😆 I was the first person in the park as the sun came up all I could do was just stare at every ledge and have flashbacks of every skate video I've seen, from Stevie Williams to AVE's manuals it was a no shame fan out moment just soaking it up like 😍😍😍😍
Stopped by @skatelab tonight and forgot about this. The ceiling of the skateshop is covered end to end with about 300+ decks signed by almost every pro that walked in their doors since they opened in 1997 and considering this is the place I came to daily as a teenager, the place I learned most of my skating at and then worked at for 5 years as my first job when I was younger I always feel honored seeing my board up on the ceiling of my hometown skate shop, always humbled and thankful to @skatelab for the years of endless support they've given me 🙏🏼 #NotLikeOtherSkateparks
