Let’s go back in time with this installment of BK’s “Flashback Friday”. Let’s look back at the early days of the Armory, and the Skateboarders that took their pilgrimage here :
When Kink.com decided to purchase the San Francisco Armory last year, they knew they were getting much more than just a new production studio. In addition to being a historic San Francisco landmark, the smooth granite front steps of the 94-year-old building have also made the Armory a treasured destination for skateboarders from all over the world.
Recently, a local production company even got Kink.com’s permission to use the historic steps (referred to by skaters as “3 up 3 down”) as a location for a commercial they were shooting for Adidas. With architecture that impresses historian, skateboarder and pornographer alike, the Armory has proved that it is truly a one of a kind building.
