  • Easily accessible by subway.
  • Both courts are full-court.
  • Rims are slightly lower than regulation height. (Some might consider this to be a positive; it is rumored that Muggsy Bogues got his start here.
  • Not too great for finding a good pick-up game. These courts are more suited to having a friendly shoot-around with a friend.
  • A 5-on-5 game might get a little crowded due to a slightly smaller court size.

Extra Info

There are toilets and water fountains available. Feel free to use the sink to wash your hands, the water fountain to wash your mouth, and the toilet to wash whatever your feel like washing.
