Finding Rhythm in Brownsville
Something beautiful is happening in Brownsville, Brooklyn…
From the first floor of NYCHA’s Seth Low Houses, the Jazzy Jumpers, a group of teenagers, kids, and patient coaches, are bringing home national and regional rankings in double dutch.
You heard us right: Double dutch. The playground pastime never went away, and now provides a happy escape for kids to stay connected to their community and each other. It also encourages healthy habits like exercise, volunteering, and time management.
