Kids involved in the Police Athletic League Play Streets took to the streets on Friday for the Summer Play Streets program.

The event, held on 61st Street between Fourth and Fifth avenues, was a chance for the kids to enjoy games — like hula hoop, arts and crafts, and Chinese pool — food, and friends.

The program, which began July 15 and runs weekdays from 9 am to 5 pm, gives kids a safe place to play on closed blocks throughout the borough. It provides them with prevention education, sports, games, and art activities. The program ends Aug. 19.

The Police Athletic League is the official youth-services agency of the New York City Police Department.
