What Is It About Play in New York City?

Librado Romero - 1972: Heavenly relief in Hell's Kitchen.

 

What is it about New York City and play? Maybe it's just that there have always been a lot of fantastic photographers roaming around New York City over the years and that is why I am always stumbling across great pictures of kids playing there.  This fabulous series of photographs is from The New York Times and appeared in a blog called Lens: Photography, Video and Visual Journalism.  

Neal Boenzi: 1977: In the mud at Flushing Meadows- Corona Park


Meyer Liebovitz: 1975: Seven sixth-graders from P.S. 158 on the Upper East Side., No make that eight. Or is it nine? Ten?

 

 

Ernest Sisto: Date unknown: Sharing space on a narrow sidewalk

 

Keith Meyers: 1991: The Camelot Pier in Sunset Park, Brooklyn


Barton Silverman: 1978: A Passover festival at Astroland in Coney Island.


Eddie Hausner: 1967: A million miles away from Second Avenue and East 103rd Street.

 

Fred R. Conrad: 1979: Brian Sasa, ar right, took the sensible approach to a boot bin investigation on Warren Street. His brother, Ali, at left was more adventurous.

 

Neal Boenzi: 1974: On a tightrope high over Henry Street

 

Sam Falk: 1958: Armed but not especially dangerous.
