Bronx Street Games Featured in New Film

The games we used to play - stickball, hopscotch, skully, Johnny-on-the-pony, and more - are featured in the new film New York Street Games that premiered Thursday night at the Village East cinema in Manhattan.  Well-known Bronxites like Regis Philbin, Robert Klein, and Robert Abrams and numerous others talk about growing up playing those games.  This film, created by Matt Levy, is a delight for those of us who converted brooms handles to stickball bats and melted crayons into bottle caps to get our skully pieces to  glide just right.  It also provides history and little-known facts about the games, as well as dust-off precious childhood memories you had forgotten long ago.  If you grew up in the Bronx (or any New York neighborhood) it's a must-see.   The New York Street Games DVD and a Street Games rules booklet will be available beginning Tuesday, May 25.
