Just a few weeks ago, Brooklyn’s Fort Greene Park was packed with protesters angry at the city’s plans to close 19 schools. This morning, the park filled with students and parents celebrating the temporary closure of the city’s schools for snow.
Philippe and Mariesa Louis brought their sons Philippe, 10, and Joshua, 5, both students at Brooklyn’s P.S. 31, to the park during a lull in the storm. There they joined other students and parents launching themselves down a hill on sleds, inner tubes and flattened cardboard boxes. A nearby tennis court was used for igloo-building and snowball fights.
