For folks interested in how kids used to play in large, urban environments, we highly recommend checking out the documentary New York Street Games.
Narrated by Hector Elizondo, New York Street Games captures a special time in American history and looks back at all things great about New York and past generations. From Boxball to Ring-o-leavio to Scully, the film addresses the social and cultural importance of these games and the sense of community they engendered. Take a trip back to the asphalt fields of New York City today!
PS: A portion of the proceeds go to KaBOOM!, but I can tell you from experience, it’s well worth your time to give it a view.
