House of Vans

“Vans made a power move into Brooklyn Saturday October 18, 2010 and unveiled its new, state-of-the-art event space, the House of Vans, opening it’s doors to 900 of New York’s skate community.

The new space is located in Brooklyn’s Greenpoint neighborhood and is a prime example of Vans’ commitment to and respect for the East Coast skate scene. The House of Vans is a 25,000-square-foot renovated warehouse, featuring an indoor concrete bowl and outdoor street course, a permanent stage for concerts and enough space to do whatever the Vans heart and soul could desire. The House of Vans will be Vans’ East Coast hub, with two full-time employees to start.

The new space’s outdoor skate park and bowl, designed by California Skateparks and influenced by Lance Mountain and Brian Pino, were well received by those in attendance.” [probably a press release]

The 25,000 square feet House of Vans (15,000 indoors and 10,000 sq. ft outdoor enclosed patio and skate plaza), located at 25 Franklin St (at Meserole), hosted a Warped Tour kick-off show back in March. It’s not exactly the type of show we’d normally cover, but when I heard there will be more concerts there this summer (stay tuned for announcements), I asked Andrew to send over some of his shots from that event so we could get an idea of what to expect.
