Located at the intersection of Lewis and Delancey Streets, Sidney Hillman Playground takes its name from the housing development that surrounds it and the man who inspired the development, Sidney Hillman (1887-1946). Hillman was born into a Jewish rabbinical family in Russia in 1887. In 1907, Hillman fled violent anti-Semitic pogroms in his homeland and immigrated to the United States. His experiences growing up as a Russian Jewish peasant would lead him to become an activist in the American labor movement.
