Come PLAY and help create chalk murals every Saturday through October on Pleasant Ave between E118th and E119th St, a NYC Open Street, in Manhattan. PLAY NYC features a colorful obstacle course that offers safe, hands-free play for children on closed-off streets, and Street Marker offers a way for multiple people to make beautiful chalk patterns and murals together. Thanks to our host in this location, Uptown Grand Central!
