West 4th Street Courts

Basketball has long been considered by many as the “city’s game” because it only requires a pair of sneakers, a ball and hoop. In New York City, West 4th Street is home to one of the most famous outdoor courts. “The Cage,” as it’s called by many players, is a whole other world in itself — with its own rules, culture and style of play. On this week’s episode of BTR Pulse, host Lauren Hawker speaks to a number of players at the court about the legendary spot.
