It's surprising that for so long the many skaters who flock to Astoria Park had nowhere to shop in the area and had to rely on Manhattan for their sporting goods. But a set of twin brothers along with their lifelong friend noticed the lack of a skateboard shop in Astoria and opened up a store two years ago, one that has become a top destination for skaters from all the boroughs. Belief Skateshop—run by Raffie and Phil Gordon, along with James Collins—sells skateboards; hosts skate events and contests; has a skate team; and carries an assortment of apparel and accessories, including beloved street-wear brands such as 10 Deep, Huff, and the Hundreds. Belief also offers skateboarding lessons for both individuals and groups at the Astoria Skate Plaza for those young or just wheeled at heart. 29-20B 23rd Avenue, Queens, 718-721-4444, (11105)
