Empty, void, deplete, exhaust, vacant, hollow, foolish, unfeeling, absence, waste…
Those are just some of the words which come to mind when I look at this picture. We spent a lot of our childhood in the schoolyard. It just doesn’t look the same.
How come the greatest schoolyard in the history of outdoor basketball is no longer in use? Where are all the ball players? Do they still play there? Do the students at Holy Name still use it for recess?
I see two backboards up on the middle court but remember there used to be three full-courts? (Upon further review, I have been informed that the two backboards are ‘rim-less’)
How about the handball court – what happened? Are those cars and vans I see?
Thanks to Amy for her shot from the corner of Howard place and Prospect avenue.
