We played stickball on Bathgate Ave. and 176st. The cops from the 48 pct. were pretty decent, if you threw the stick under a car, they usually overlooked what we did.
Where did you get your stickball bats? We would go into the yards of our apartment buildings for our bats. Families hung their mops out their kitchen window and we would climb up and take a mop when we needed a stickball bat. We then took the mop handle and adjusted it to the size we wanted by sticking one end in the holes of the manhole cover and broke it.
