NEW YORK STREET GAMES cover image
A gem, especially for those who grew up in NYC or have heard the countless stories of what kids used to do in the summer and on weekends. A romantic, sentimental feel to it with wonderful memories. Kids would learn a little history, about life before computer games and other modern toys. A fun and in-depth analysis of NYC games and kids. Adults had fun yelling out the rules they could remember while watching. It is fun to see children playing, and value in their learning the games and understanding the history, but this is more geared toward adults in it's language, than toward kids. The archival footage of children playing stickball, stoopball, etc., while the adults watched from sidelines and windows was fun and historical. Provoked many questions concerning the way our children play today and their healthier more active lifestyle. Comes with a game rule booklet to aid in the quest to revive some of these seldom played games.
Covers the origins of the street games that were played and shared by all children within inner city neighborhoods. It's narrated by Hector Elizondo and features interviews with Regis Philbin, Ray Romano and Keith David, among many others.
