Best Basketball Court for Players


We’ve played on a lot of courts across the city—indoors and out—and Goat Park, named after street-ball legend Earl “the Goat” Manigault, is pretty good, whether you’re a college player, an old-timer, or a kid shooting hoops with your dad. There’s an annual tournament in Manigault’s name, and the top teams from the summer pro leagues stage a final throwdown there every year in late August. Amsterdam Avenue and 99th Street, (10025)
