It is ashamed what happen to this young man. I played all my different kind of sports growing up on the lower east side. Right where this young man got killed in front of 118 Ave D we use to play on the barrels,football,stickball,bas ketball on the logs,skellys,johnny on the pony,tag on the igloo, etc. All on that little block...most of us stayed out of trouble the majority of us work for the city and some are retired 90% of the kids turned out alright! But we had all these things to do. After they re-did Jacob riis and took away the barrels,the igloo,stickball, and the games we use to play there is nothing for those kids to do there, it was the worst travesty of man kind for that neiborhood. Now you go there and they have benches right smack in the middle and city bikes park there....terrible!
