PAL Kicks Off Summer Play Streets Program

The Police Athletic League (PAL) launched its 2012 Summer Play Streets Program on Monday, July 9 at West Bourne Playground bet- ween Mott Avenue and Beach 25 Street.

New York City youngsters play traditional sidewalk games, develop their creativity through the arts, and learn from a wide range of educational, recreational and cultural arts specialists.

PAL’s Summer Play Streets Program closes off streets and utilizes other public areas, such as playgrounds and parks, throughout New York City to provide children with safe, supervised places to enjoy outdoor summer activities.

Play Streets are open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. through August 24, and are free to all New York City children.

Play Streets offer sports, arts and crafts, games, music and dance.

Featured activities include Double Dutch jump rope, Hopscotch, Nok Hockey and basketball. PAL is operating close to 50 Play Streets throughout the five boroughs, in addition to offering Cops and Kids teams and day camps.

New York City’s Police Athletic League is the first, largest and finest civilian-run PAL in the country. Founded in 1914, PAL has served New York City’s young people for 98 years.

PAL provides recreational, educational, cultural and social activities to over 50,000 boys and girls annually. It is also the city’s largest, independent, nonprofit youth organization. For more information, please visit www.palnyc.org
