Santigold and Trouble Andrew volunteer with Hoods to Woods

Within the last couple of weeks, the New York City Department of Education has been trying to close Open Road Park, a sanctuary for area skateboarders in Lower East Side, Manhattan in New York.

Yet on a summery weekend this past May, Santigold, Trouble Andrew, and Brian Deka Paupaw on behalf of Hoods To Woods Foundation and in tandem with Billy Rohan of Open Road, brought about the construction park's first mini ramp for local skateboarders.

Watch the video of the event at the Life + Times blog.
