Tear Down This ‘Jail’ Demands Brooklynites

*Mar 24 - 00:05* For almost a decade, a city-funded playground with a play prison has enjoyed a relatively drama free existence, but after a photo of the mini-training camp made its way online, workers quickly painted over the word “JAIL.” However, some residents still aren’t happy and want it ripped out and replaced. Now, even City Councilman Al Vann is chiming in. He thinks the NYCHA should “apologize to the community,” but with his district office located within earshot of the playground, maybe he should do the same for being oblivious to it? |NYDN|
