We got bored today and decided to share a quick list of favorite Kings of New York Streetwear . We definitely want everyone to know our list probably isnt politically correct but its very damn well biased to how we actually feel… We really dont care what people think about sales this or tshirt that or blah… We just went with who we think have been holding down NY in the right light. No specific order really this is just how it came to my head.
Off top we had to go with 10Deep. To us at KINGS OF NY they have pretty much been the top of NY streetwear for a long time.
SUPREME… just like the logo… nuff said im sure.
Next up is REASON Brand. We have always like the classic tees they drop each season so when we opened we definitely stocked a few from the reason crew. The Go Love Your own City Tshirt was and probably will always be a huge hit in my book. Guess thats why you guys see it every season.
The New Reason outpost shop
And of course last but never ever to be forgotten… Our own line Dont Question Kings. Biased huh??? yes of course how could we not mention our damn selves. We have repped NY since 2006 with our line. Putting out dope tshirts and sweatshirts for all new yorkers to love. From the Bronx and probably the only brand on this list born and raised here in NYC since day 1. No shade of course but we are just saying .
We decided to dedicate this post to Graffiti in New York. Since we love street art and all the aspects that come along with tagging your own name on building around New York City. The risk, the audacity, and the pure heart of some true artists who risk freedom and their lives even just to display there artwork to all of NYC and the world of course. New York city has always been on of those cities that are staples in success. We breed a lot of young hungry creative people and attract those same type of people from other states/countries who are looking to make a name for themselves in many different fields of art. So with no more further words heres some great pieces we found.

One of the greatest king of new york quotes has to be when frank gets back and basically takes over. YOUR ALL WELCOME!!!
Frank White:”From now on, nothing goes down unless I’m involved. No blackjack no dope deals, no nothing. A nickel bag gets sold in the park, I want in. You guys got fat while everybody starved on the street. Now it’s my turn.”
Watch the scene on youtube here: King Of New York
King of New York is a 1990 American crime drama film, starring Christopher Walken, Laurence Fishburne, David Caruso, Wesley Snipes, Victor Argo, and Giancarlo Esposito. It was directed by independent filmmaker Abel Ferrara and written by Nicholas St. John.
Frank White (Walken), a drug lord, is riding into New York in a limousine after being released from Sing Sing. Emilio El Zapa (Howard), a Colombian drug dealer, is shot to death in a telephone booth. As the killers leave, one of them drops a newspaper headline which announces Frank’s release.
Across town, Zapa’s partner, King Tito (Abuse) is in a hotel room with Jimmy Jump (Fishburne) and Test Tube (Buscemi), who are negotiating the purchase of cocaine. Jimmy and Test Tube shoot Tito and his bodyguards and steal the cocaine.
Later, in a suite at the Plaza Hotel, Frank is greeted by Jimmy, Test Tube, and other members of his gang, who welcome him home with champagne and a briefcase full of money. Frank leaves to meet two of his lawyers, Joey Dalesio (Calderón) and Jennifer (Julian), for dinner. Frank expresses his desire to be mayor and asks Dalesio to set up a meeting with Mafia boss Arty Clay (Gio). He and Jennifer leave to take a ride on the subway. Confronted by three muggers, Frank first brandishes his gun then gives them a wad of money, telling them to ask for him at the Plaza Hotel if they want work.
Dalesio goes to Little Italy, to set up a meeting with Clay but the crime lord urinates on Dalesio’s shoes and tells him it is a message for his boss. On hearing this, Frank, Jump and other members of the gang go to Clay’s social club, where Frank tells Clay that he wants a percentage of all Clay’s profits. When Clay insults him, Frank shoots the mafioso. As he leaves, Frank tells Clay’s men that they can all find employment at the Plaza.
The next night, Frank is confronted by Detectives Roy Bishop (Argo), Dennis Gilley (Caruso), and Thomas Flanigan (Snipes), of the NYPD narcotics squad, who say they are taking him in. Instead, they drive him to an empty lot where they show him the body of Emilio El Zapa in the trunk. When Frank refuses to confess, Gilley and Flanigan beat him and leave him in the lot.
Frank sends Dalesio to Chinatown to make contact with Larry Wong (Chin), a local Triad leader who has $15 million worth of cocaine. Larry is leery, and demands that they meet alone on neutral ground to discuss the deal. Larry demands $3 million up front and another $500,000 after the drugs are sold. Frank counters that the two should team up, then split the profits evenly. Larry turns him down and demands that Frank decide immediately whether he wants to buy the drugs. Frank declines.
Jimmy Jump and several of Frank’s lieutenants are arrested by Gilley and Flanigan, who reveal that one of Tito’s bodyguards is alive and willing to testify. When Frank learns of his men’s arrest, he orders his lawyers to arrange their release, and sends a limousine to pick them up. They head to Chinatown, where they kill Larry and his gang. They find the cocaine in the basement.
Gilley, Flanigan and other officers resolve to use illegal means to get rid of Frank. Posing as drug dealers, they bribe Dalesio into leading them to the nightclub where Frank and his men are partying. The cops burst in shooting, slaying several members of Frank’s gang. Fleeing over the Queensboro Bridge, Frank and Jump trade shots with the police, killing all but Gilley and Flanigan. After evading their pursuers, the two men split up. Jump shoots Flanigan in the chest, puncturing his ballistic vest. Gilley kills Jump with a single shot to the head. A few days later at Flanigan’s funeral, Frank kills Gilley.
That night, after his men kill Dalesio, Frank goes to Bishop’s apartment, telling him that he has placed a $250,000 bounty on every detective involved in the case. Holding Bishop at gunpoint, Frank explains that he killed Tito, Larry, Arty Clay, and Zapa because he disapproved of their businesses, including human trafficking and child prostitution.
Before he leaves, Frank forces Bishop to handcuff himself to a chair. As Frank heads to the subway, Bishop uses a hidden gun to free himself. Following Frank into a subway car, Bishop corners him. Frank shoots Bishop, killing him, but the policeman is able to fire a last shot. In a taxi in Times Square, Frank realizes that he has been hit. As police officers surround the car, Frank closes his eyes and goes limp.
CHIEF JUDGE JONATHAN LIPPMAN’S
LAW DAY 2012
Today on Law Day, we pause from our busy routines to celebrate our nation’s faith
in the rule of law and the liberties we so dearly cherish. And we reaffirm the ideals of
equality and justice that are the roots of our national prosperity.
While we enjoy the freedoms guaranteed to us by our Constitution, we cannot take
for granted that the continued vitality of those freedoms — the very life of those freedoms –
depends on the active engagement of each of us. Those who are privileged to call
ourselves lawyers have a special duty as the gatekeepers of justice to participate in
preserving what we hold so dear.
With that in mind, my remarks today will focus on a most pressing responsibility for
all of us: instilling and fostering a culture of service in the men and women who enter our
profession as lawyers each year. It is the legal profession’s commitment to equal justice
and to the practice of law as a higher calling that has made service to others an intrinsic
part of our legal culture. The new protocols that I will announce today for admission to the
bar in New York, will challenge every law student to answer very basic questions that are
fundamental to the very fibre of the legal profession: How will you choose to benefit your
fellow man and your community with your new skills? Will you use your legal acumen to
foster equal justice in our state? Do you recognize that being a lawyer requires an
understanding that access to justice must be available to all New Yorkers regardless of
their station in life? From the start, these responsibilities of the profession must be a part
of every lawyer’s DNA – - to support the values of justice, equality and the rule of law that
make this state and this country great.
