Crack Is Wack Playground information
This far-flung playground is named for the bright orange ‘Crack is Wack’ mural painted by pop graffiti artist Keith Haring on a handball court back in October 1986. Restored and now visible through wire fencing, the work harkens back to a time when Haring’s creations covered walls all over New York.
