Shared memories

Every picture tells a story don't it.

There's a story behind every banana seat.
Many of the simple day to day routines and circumstances we took for granted when young take on different and deeper meanings when recalled after many years. Funny incidents and youthful victories are particularly precious and worthy of recollection and retelling.

This section contains stories written by Streetplay staff and our readers. There's some great material here that we hope you will enjoy.

Member Spotlight
Stories and recollections sent in by readers, ranging from kite battles in the Bronx to throwing out the first ball at Shea. Other subjects include memories about the junkdraw, the theft of a prize baseball card and the passing of a stickball tradition from father to son.

Hanging Out
Hanging Out was the first chapter of what we planned as a coffee table book. Instead, we decided to bring it to the web.

Special Topics
Streetplay's run a number of contests where readers submitted stories on various topics ranging from first kiss to April Fools, making money as a kid and more.

When we meet someone famous, we get right to the point and ask that tough, gripping question, "What did you do as a kid?" This section includes some of the more colorful responses.

Please send us your stories or visit the the discussion area and share them with others visiting the site.
