Come out and Celebrate Soul Artist Of Zoo York Skater and my fellow upper west sider Andy Kessler aka the Grand master of 108 st This Saturday
Kessler and his twin sister were born in Athens, Greece, adopted by an American family and raised on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. He started skateboarding in the early 1970s in Central Park, on a short hill near to its West 69th Street entrance. He soon joined a group of inner city kids congregating around the bandshell inside the park at West 71st Street, the street he was raised on. The steep paths of nearby Riverside Park also became a favorite haunt of Kessler and other skateboarders.
