Today in Fort Greene

In the playground of PS 20 Arts + Letters in Fort Greene Brooklyn skateboarding, BMX, and basketball co-exist with kindergarten kids playing, unfenced, nearby.

An ollie over the gap contest that pitches the skateboarders right into the busy play equipment doesn't faze anyone. In fact the kids follow the skaters around, asking to borrow their boards. And when someone lands a trick they shout. Then they try it.

Tarela Kelvin Ebiotu, (above), a graduate of PS 20 and now a college student nearby, shows the kids how it's done. Thanks Tarel.
