If you have any games that you or your children have outgrown, we would love to take them off your hands and put them to great use.

The Neighborhood Center invites all generations of neighborhood families for a variety of cultural, educational, and recreational activities – outdoors, when the weather permits. Activities include games and sports (basketball, soccer, volleyball, wiffleball), a lending library, creative arts and literacy activities, performing arts groups, a play yard for young children, and a family lounge with reading and homework tables.

Neighborhood Centers are open six days a week at PS 1 (309 47th Street, Brooklyn, NY 11220; phone: (718) 492-2619) and seven days a week at PS 503/506 (333 60th Street, Brooklyn, NY 11220; phone:  (718) 439-5986).
