Zora, Jai, and I spent about an hour playing tag on this neighborhood playground, overlooked by what appears to be an abandoned factory for the Sterling Paper Company. While we played, a freight train, which had been idling on the tracks that run next to the playground, came to life and moved out, while kids and adults on the basketball court and the baseball field continued playing. Like a lot of neighborhood playgrounds, there’s nothing particularly unique about this spot, except perhaps the old stand-alone sliding board. But also like a lot of neighborhood playgrounds, I’m sure a lot of neighbors spend time here on the playgrounds, fields, and swimming pool, especially on days when it’s not quite so gloomy as the day we visited.
