Have you heard about Playstreets? Playstreet...

Have you heard about Playstreets? Playstreets are neighborhood blocks that are closed off during the daytime in the summer. They’re a safe place for our kids to play without having to leave their neighborhood. In addition to summertime fun, these sites also offer lunches for neighborhood youth ages 18 and under. McPherson Square is a Playstreets location where kids can receive free meals. A few other nearby Playstreets serving free summer meals include: - 2200 N. Fairhill St - 600 W. Mayfield St - 2700 N. Warnock St - Lillian Marrero Branch Library https://beta.phila.gov/programs/playstreets/

Can a new basketball court save a struggling Philly neighborhood?

Barriers included scarce funding, too few volunteers and, perhaps above all, the constant backdrop of fear — an undeniable force since a beloved neighborhood kid, 17-year-old Robert Reid, was gunned down on the court at Eighth and Cumberland streets in 2014.

    Can a new basketball court save a struggling Philly neighborhood?
    Scarce funding, too few volunteers and, perhaps above all, the constant backdrop of fear - a beloved neighborhood kid, 17-year-old Robert Reid, was gunned down on the court at Eighth and Cumberland streets in 2014 - kept the courts vacant for years.
