When Chris Nieratko started writing some 15+ years ago NYC skateboarding legend and friend to all, Andy Kessler, told Chris, "Whatever you do, don't bullshit the people. And don't pull any punches." Chris has spent his entire career trying to heed those words that Andy gave and that Andy lived by.When Vans opened the House of Vans they knew they couldn't bullshit the people either. It was Andy Kessler's town. Skateboarding wouldn't be what it was in New York without him and so we're all very proud to pay tribute to the man by hosting Andy Kessler Day at the HOV in Brooklyn.
