These days, 10 years is a long time to keep anything going—especially a niche website meant to amuse a small group of friends. The New York City skate scene has seen inflation affect its diet (the dollar slice is, sadly, almost extinct); friends give up on "the dream" and move to California; and even the T.F. (the best practice ground for downtown skaters) transform into a playground for weekend roller hockey.
Through these changes, Quartersnacks has consistently been equal parts forum and voice, pundit and proving ground: if you make it on the site, you have contributed to the scene's history. Maybe most importantly, it helped create a community in a city where it's easy to feel like an outsider.
