In the western part of the greater Jakarta of South Tangerang or Tangsel, the original inhabitants live in the previously rural part called Kampung Cilenggang. While the nearby area of Bumi Serpong Damai (BSD) demonstrates the spectacle of development and modernization, the inhabitants felt behind as the spectators. Yet the identity of Kampung Cilenggang as the village gradually disappeared and in return, produced the confusion of the space, especially for the adolescents. This group who now in the age of 16-19 were still kids before Tangsel becomes the independent city. Now, growing to be the adolescents, they still regard Kampung Cilenggang as their play area. This paper aims to investigate the space for marginal adolescents, focusing on how they use their space and time outside the school hours. In conducting this research, we studied a group of adolescents in a high school located in Kampung Cilenggang. Our methods were mapping of their play space, observing their behavior, and conducting interviews. This paper reveals that the rapid development of Tangsel shrunk Kampung Cilenggang and forced the adolescents to anticipate the loss of the play space by claiming some small eatery places (warung) as their gathering places.
