This study examines leisure pursuits in two Black ethnic groups (African Americans and Jamaicans), and two categories of Whites (Italians and other Whites). The systematic comparison of these groups yields useful information on factors influencing participation in leisure activities. Part one discusses the access models, then goes on to a profile of New Haven, with examinations of ethnic hangouts, cooking, media, and festival. Part two focuses specifically on urban park use.
