Playtime In Park Slope: Upcoming Children’s Events


Yellow Sneaker Puppet via FBTime to start planning: The New York City Department of Education has cancelled after school programs and PSAL activities for today, Tuesday January 21 because of the weather, and while no other changes to the school schedule have been made yet, if we really get as much snow as is expected tonight, we’d bet schools could be cancelled tomorrow.
