The weather was perfect, the mood upbeat and for the second year, Streetplay joined the folks at the Jerome-Gun Hill Business Improvement District Street Festival to teach kids how to play stickball, boxball, hit the stick, jump rope. hopscotch, skully and other games that have been popular for years in the neighborhoods of New York City.

Now in its fourth year, The Jerome-Gun Hill festival has become a highly anticipated event in this section of the Bronx, focusing on neighborhood unity and drawing thousands of participants of all ages. In addition to Streetplay teaching what Roberto Garcia, the BID's excutive director calls "Old Skool Games," this year's festival including local dance groups, community info, arts and crafts, and of course lots of food.

A special thanks to the folks at the Jerome-Gun Hill BID for putting together such a great event. We also want to send out a thanks to our festival neighbors, the crew from Disney radio, whose high energy drew even more kids to our section of the street.
