P.S. 6: Pony Rides & Petting Zoo

May 19, 2007

Public School 6 is located in one of the wealthiest sections of New York City, on a block lined with mansions and luxury buildings. Today the school, which serves children from kindergarten through 5th grade, held its annual Spring Fling fundraiser.

East 82nd Street between Madison and Park Avenues was closed to traffic and a food table, giant slide, rock climbing wall, dunking tank, entertainment and other attractions were set up. The event was billed as “rain or shine,” but once it began drizzling, most of the activities were packed away.

The petting zoo and pony rides remained in place long enough for these city kids to enjoy the rare experience of meeting calves, chicks, ducks, goats, bunnies and a llama face to face and riding the small, gentle ponies up and down the block.
