BROOKLYN - Volunteers didn't let the wet weather earlier today keep them from getting their hands dirty for a very important community project.

Volunteers from Forest City Ratner and the nonprofit “Kaboom” built a playground at Pratt Towers in Clinton Hill in under six hours. More than 200 people worked through the rain and mud.

The housing unit hasn't had a proper playground in two decades.

The playground was designed by the children who live in the community.
