About The Police Athletic League NYC:

New York City’s Police Athletic League is the first and finest civilian-run PAL in the country. It is also the city’s largest, independent, nonprofit youth organization. In 1914, the New York City Police Commissioner opened PAL playstreets out of concern for children who lived in congested city neighborhoods. He set aside blocks as playgrounds and closed off traffic. Mothers rushed to thank him, and children cheered his efforts. In 2015, PAL provides safe places to play citywide through recreational and educational programs for 35,000 young New Yorkers.
