When you leave the Everson Museum, and walk out, there’s a whole area by the museum where there’s a bunch of young people—teenage guys, mostly—skateboarding. And it’s great to watch! Such amazing energy! They’re just zooming along!

Syracuse is lucky to have them. I think sometimes we don’t realize that these teenagers are an important part of the community. Some people are turned off by the image of the skater dude and see them hanging out as a negative thing. But I think we need to look at teenage energy as an asset, a resource. We need to celebrate it.

By the museum
Bodies dance across pavement
Skateboards crash and clang
