The hoops and nets arrived this weekend… and now the Tompkins Square Park basketball courts are back in play…
[Random pic from yesterday morning]
The courts had been out of commission since May 29, with an original reopen date at the end of June. As previously cut-and-pasted, the New York City Parks Department teamed up with YouTube for the renovations. The logo in the middle of the courts is of the Parks Department. A few EVG commenters wondered if a YouTube logo might make its way on the court somewhere… well, not so far.
