Say the word spaldeen to someone. If you get a blank stare, they're probably not from New York City, and/or they probably didn't play in the street. But what the heck is a spaldeen? Tell us your definition here.



Did you play with a spaldeen as a kid? Do you still? Did you call it something else? Join the crowd and voice your choice!

Kids take playing in the street seriously... but there are always exceptions that would make any of us stop playing and do something else. We picked a few popular diversions that might have made us stop playing; how do they compare with your memory?

What was Joe Viterelli's favorite game as a kid?
Stickball
Johnny on the pony
Bookie on the corner

Fuggetaboutit!


Vote now--see how your opinion stacks up!

Joe Viterelli is an actor well known for playing mobsters, like "Jelly" in Analyze This and "Vinnie the Shrimp" in Mickey Blue Eyes. When we met him at the 2000 Welcome Back to Brooklyn Festival, it got us thinking, "What kind of game would a goodfella like Joe would play as a kid?"



We hope you enjoy these polls; let us know if you have ideas for new ones!
