In terms of the physical layout, I can only speak for my own public school, P.S. 106. The building itself seemed to be in the shape of a U (with straight lines, of course, no curves). In the space between the arms of the U was the yard. But the yard was small, not big enough for a ball game. In fact, all I can recall doing in the yard was practicing throws at a strike zone which someone chalked onto the building. The yard branched out into a larger area which contained playground equipment (which nobody seemed to ever use) and a ballfield which was paved over with concrete but which was very rough and uneven. Bad job on that.
