    Free courtside tickets to the best (street) basketball in NYC. It's an institution.

    Weekends have some great skills on show. The court is right next to the 4th St subway.

    Summer league is fun to watch but these courts are terrible to play on.

    Check the just opened courts at Pier 2, Brooklyn Bridge Park. Really special. Maybe undiscovered by city's best ballers but not for long...

    Commonly known as “The Cage,” the West 4th Street basketball courts host some of the most competitive amateur tournaments in the city.

    If you want to see grit-and-grind street ball, take a peek through the fence at The Cage. The court’s barely half regulation size, but basketball legends such as Dr. J have called it home in the past.

    Make NYC Your Gym with your friends by challenging them to a pick-up basketball game at the West 4th St. Courts. Making NYC Your Gym with others is not only good exercise but tons of fun!

    A top spot to play amateur basketball in NYC. It’s also a popular scouting spot, so make sure to bring your A-Game.

    They do as much arguing here as balling. Come for the laughs.

    Catch a good gritty bball game in the heart of the West Village. If you're lucky, you can witness an NBA player playing during the off season or see young rising NYC stars sweat it out.

    Site of the premier New York City summer streetball league and a mainstay of West Village recreation.

    Always an exciting game running at The Cage. Watch the City Game at this old school City Spot. Bring a slice and stick around for a bit.

    Take it to the streets and get some cardio in. Be prepared to hustle, this court is no joke.

    There are always high quality pickup ball games any day of any week at The Cage. And we agree with Tim, the games are incredible.

    One of the more casual courts within the downtown area. Easy to get to via train (West 4th - A/C/E/B/D/F/V trains). Read more

    Best court w/views in the city. Bring a drink, or walk about 5-10 minutes north for a vending machine or the occasional street vendor with Gatorades. Bathrooms at least 10-15 minute walk north.

    The basketball here is more fun to watch than the in the pros. Small court w no sides to speak of makes for fast physical play, and there's lots of outer borough 'tude on display.
