From skateboarders to BMX riders to artists to musicians, New York City is filled with colorful personalities who make the city tick. Acclaimed director Johannsen explores these unique individuals on Asphalt NYC. Johannsen finds the folks who are the lifeblood of NYC. Not the gentrifying hedge-funders, but the real-deal New Yorkers who make the city what it is.
In the second installment of "Asphalt NYC", legendary New York City street BMX rider Desmond "Blackman" Rhodes talks about his past, and his future. He then hits the streets to tackle a deadly kink rail over in Queens that he's secretly had on his radar for years.
Produced by René Sascha Johannsen
