Play Streets is back for the summer.
For more than 100 years the Police Athletic League has provided safe places to play and learn through its Summer Play Streets Program.
Youngsters play traditional sidewalk games including double Dutch jump rope, hopscotch, nok hockey, and basketball, plus develop their creativity through the arts, and learn from a wide range of educational, recreational, and cultural arts specialists.
The program provides children a safe, supervised place to enjoy outdoor summer activities.
All playstreets are open Monday through Friday, from 9 am to 5 pm, July 6 through Aug. 21 and are free.

61st Street between Fourth and Fifth avenues in Bay Ridge.
