Playing Ball, in Red Hook, Brooklyn

The ball fields in Red Hook are located near warehouses and abandoned factories.

New York isn't all about stickball and hoops. We have our fair share of public tennis courts, swimming pools, soccer fields and baseball diamonds.

Mark and I were in Red Hook this weekend, where a mostly Hispanic baseball league was enjoying a bit of Indian Summer. It was beautifully sunny, and entire families were out, watching the games.

The fields were nowhere near perfect, but New Yorkers are a tough bunch. We make do with what we've got.
