Years of Operation: 2003-Present
Founded by professional skateboarder and New Yorker, Chris Keeffe, DQM has been an absolute staple in NYC's downtown scene. Representative of the "culture and relationships" that came before it, DQM is still going strong to assist those in need of skate goods, sneakers and menswear. Their Vans-only shop, The General, is also a must.
