What does it mean to "play" for kids today?

There has been so much discussion on play of late. I even picked up my daughter at daycare and found in her cubby a newsletter on the importance of play. It seems kids are getting less time to be creative, to imagine and to simply be themselves, unstructured, and in the moment. Here is a thorough piece from the Sunday NY Times Magazine well worth the read.

What does this mean for those who have no access to play areas? And those in the inner city?
