SPRINGS LIKE THE BOP

While walking along the street, do kids jump up and touch street signs anymore?

As a teen, I recall doing that all the time around the neighborhood.

Whether it was a ‘No Parking’ sign on a street lamppost or a store awning on ninth avenue, we were always jumping up trying to touch things. We always had a competition; to see who could jump the highest. Some kids got up higher than others.

My vertical wasn’t that high but I was always trying to jump as high as possible to hit something.

    When you were walking with your friends, you would always pick a spot and call it and jump for it and thee other guys would try to reach it…looking back, we were pretty creative in amusing ourselves.. coco leeveo, mum freeze, henway, & red light freen light…

    I think the first ones I started reaching were the “alternate side parking ” signs on 10th ave outside my house……
