West 4th Street Basketball League

| Summer, 2009

west 4 streetball nyc The West 4th Street Basketball League takes place at "The Cage" basketball court on West 4th street and 6th Avenue in the Greenwich Village section of downtown Manhattan.

It's one of the main NYC summer streetball leagues. West Fourth street basketball is a mainstay in New York City. While most basketball courts are in isolated locations and away from sidewalks and traffic, the West 4th street Cage is directly next to a busy sidewalk, massive NYC subway station stop and large street (6th Avenue) that's always flooded with traffic.

Aside from a few chairs that get put down behind one of the baskets during West 4th Street league games, there is no seating at this court. There's standing room behind the section of chairs, and other than that, to watch the game you either squeeze onto the sidewalk (as tons of people keep trying to walk past you) or you go behind the other basket (which means you're standing on the outside of the "cage)."

One of these days, the next time InsideHoops.com passes by the court (pretty regularly) we'll take some digital photos and post them here.
