Shooting Hoops at West 4th Street, in the Village

West 4th pick up game, NYC Photo by myself at the basketball courts at West 4th and Sixth Avenue, in the Village.

During daylight hours when it's not raining, the public basketball court near the West 4th Street subway station is always busy.

Always, always. I have never seen it empty. Movies and commercials have been shot at this court, also known as 'The Cage'.

A couple half-court pick-up games were in progress, late Thursday afternoon. The court is fenced in and there is also always a bunch of people watching. It's in a rather public location, with a wide sidewalk running along Sixth Avenue for bystanders. Players should not be shy.

The West 4th Courts even have their own Wiki page. You can see it here.

The place really looks familiar (as you said, maybe from a movie).
