I grew up in Flatbush during the sixties ans early 70’s, and hung out on East 17th Street, between Foster & Newkirk. Anyone out their remember the great stick ball games played? We also engraved a Skelly court into the tar one hot summer day. It stayed their for quite some time. During the day, Harry the ice cream man would come by, and we would take a break to grab one of our favorites. Those were the good old days. I now live in NJ, and no one hear has heard of the game Skelly.
