Access to athletics and informal play space is a primary component of a livable, active, healthy city. With rates of childhood obesity, diabetes, and asthma continuing to rise in our city, there is a dire need for additional access to athletic and recreational sport spaces for children and teens throughout New York City. Most simply put, there is not enough field and indoor court time to accommodate the many organized sports teams, schools, and recreational organizations in New York. More specifically, conversations with after school programs, school athletic groups, and other athletic organizations suggest there is a shortage of lighted athletic fields. Many of these programs operate at the end of the typical school or work day. As a result, they all need space at the exact same time, between 3pm and 10pm each evening.
