A classic setting for Streetplay

When Michael Mays (son of baseball legend Willie Mays) contacted us to help him and his organization Team Next with the Second Annual Back To School Street Play Invitational, how could we say no? Needless to say, the second time was twice as nice, and we're sure that this event will become an annual New York City fixture rivaling the New Year's Eve party in Times Square (well, almost).

We were privileged to spend a beautiful day in September on St. Nicholas Place between 152nd and 153rd Streets--the "Sugar Hill" section of Harlem--playing the games we know and love: stickball, hopscotch, skully, and jumprope. An old-school block-party atmosphere prevailed as hundreds of neighborhood kids and adults ate, laughed, and played in the street... in the very same place Willie Mays himself played stickball after day games at the Polo Grounds!

More evidence of the fun we had can be seen in the pictures below. Can Streetplay help you with your event? Please contact us and we'll figure it out.
