A New York skate shop’s ‘Skate Shop Theory’ Is Not A Theory
Skate shops in New York City are full of theories about what the heck is going on in their backyards.
And the more you dive into these theories, the more your sense of humor is going to take a hit.
A shop in New Jersey has become the latest to get the boot for not being “smart.”
The reason is that its theory of the universe, “The Skate Shop,” was so obviously wrong that it made a mockery of the real world.
The Ska Shop theory states that the Skate shop is an invention of New York’s urban legends and myths.
While its been debunked in the past, this is not the first time it’s been floated as the source of New Yorkers’ weirdest urban legends.
The “The Secret Garden” in Philadelphia is the perfect example.
In the 1970s, the legend spread that a man was hanging out with his family and a neighbor would come and watch him skate.
Eventually, police and the public realized the man had been playing a trick on his family to make them believe the man was actually a ghost.
This legend has become so ingrained in the fabric of the city that it’s a regular occurrence.

This story of a man who lived a life of “secret gardens” is one that is very familiar to New Yorkers.
When you go to the local supermarket or flea market, you’ll often find something that sounds like a skate shop.
A giant mural of a skateboard is always covered in graffiti, but this is usually the case.
The shop may also have a skateboarding section, but that’s usually where you’ll find the best skateboarding gear.
In fact, a few stores even sell actual skateboards.
While some shops have been criticized for this urban legend, a handful have stood up to defend themselves.
One of them is The Ska House, located in Brooklyn’s Upper West Side.
The owners claim the idea of the skate shop is simply a marketing ploy.
They say it’s just a way for people to learn about the city’s history.
“It’s just like any other urban legend,” owner Chris Vollmer said.
“There are so many, so many urban legends that go around.
But it’s not a myth, it’s an urban legend.”
Vollmer added, “When people hear about the Ska Warehouse, they just say, ‘Wow, that’s crazy.
They don’t understand the real history of the building.
There’s no skate shop in this building.
We’re just trying to sell some stuff.
It’s a really cool concept.”
Despite the “Skate Warehouse” theory, Vollmers family and friends have been taking to social media to defend the store.
“I just like to see a bunch of people standing up and saying it’s true,” he said.
Vollmers son, Chris, has been taking the same stance.
He’s even created a YouTube channel to promote the shop.
“Chris is trying to educate people,” Vollers son said.
The Skine Shop Theory is just a big urban legend.
I can’t imagine that people are going to be surprised when I say it is true.
Chris Volls son, The Skine House, takes a different approach.
He is just as concerned with getting his customers to understand the history of this building as the people who live there.
