    NYC housing agency changes playground's fake jail

    NYC housing agency changes playground's fake jail - Yahoo! News

    NEW YORK – Complaints have prompted New York City's public housing authority to change a playground jungle gym made to resemble a jail.

    Workers removed the word "jail" and fake bars on Wednesday from the Tompkins Houses jungle gym in Brooklyn.

    Natasha Godley, who has a 6-year-old son, says she complained because "it was like promoting kids to go to jail."

    Housing Authority spokeswoman Sheila Stainback says it was part of the original design of the playground, which was erected in 2004. She says no one complained until this week.

    Really? I've seen playgrounds with jails in a western theme. How about the parent do their job and teach their kid not to want to go to jail. Jesus christ people are unbelievable

    That playground jail was a valuable teaching aid in the hood. Where else are those poor children going to learn how to walk around with their asses hanging out of pants way too large in the waist for them?
