Here's what's old on Streetplay
Fellow Streetplay readers,

The school bell may have just sounded, but that doesn't mean an
end to outdoor fun.  As the days grow shorter, take a look at
the latest Streetplay syllabus.

Streetplay at the Smithsonian
As many of you know, we were down in Washington DC this summer
teaching people all about New York City folk culture.  Over a
million came to the festival, and every last person played
stoopball... well, at least a lot of them.  We have the skinned
knees and the pictures to prove it.

New section: Philly focus
Few places can match Philly when it comes to its history of
street games.  We've started a new section to explore and
document this rich tradition. Take a look at what we've got, and
help us add to it.

Contest: Back to School

Remember the weight of the new books, the sickly sweet smell of
crayons, and the anticipation of meeting your new teacher?  Tell
us your best back to school story, win $50.

Handball: The USHA 2001 One-wall Nationals
When you see a bunch of intense people leaping around Coney
Island handball courts in August, it's a safe guess that
playoffs are in session.  Read the coverage, and don't miss the
photo essays.

Stickball: We've got all the action
Read the latest about the stickball scene, from a birds' eye
view of the Daily News Classic to this year's Stickball Hall of
Fame inductees.

Streetplay store: shiny and new
Whether it's Nok Hockey or Lite Brite, we know you'll find a
childhood favorite.  And don't miss Bowling Champ Barbie.

OK, that's enough for one e-mail.  Class is dismissed: get out
there and play!
