Junior Printmakers: Printers Park

Apparently last week was the official opening of Printers Park, a playground in New York City inspired by printing equipment. The park was constructed on property owned long ago by Richard March Hoe, who invented the rotary printing press in 1843. NYC Parks and Rec sez:

The southern portion was reconstructed in 2009 with a playground modeled after the design of the rotary printing press: graduated steps mimic the cylinders of the press, and the white pathway running through the park alludes to the continuous roll of paper that was fed through the press.

Last April, the Times featured this photo of the park’s super-fun printing press jungle gym:

Kids can pretend they’re INK!!

    That is quite possibly the coolest thing I’ve seen all year.

    I’m short, I might still fit on that playground.
