Bobbito Garcia's Guide to Playground Hoops in NYC

Marine Park

WHERE: Marine Park, Brooklyn (between Flatbush, Gerritsen & Fillmore Aves, Jamaica Bay)

BOBBITO SAYS: This is deep, deep into Brooklyn; a lot of people don't know about it, but it's a jewel of a playground. They got four full courts but they only play half court. Out of all the parks, on the weekends and afternoons, this might be the most packed basketball environment in the city. You got eight 3-on-3 games going on at the same time. A special place. Everybody's chill, no arguing, and everybody plays hard.
