Bobbito Garcia's Guide to Playground Hoops in NYC

West 4th

WHERE: Greenwich Village (W 4th St. & 6th Ave.)

BOBBITO SAYS: In Manhattan, this is the ground zero for pickup. They've been running fulls there since the '50s. The tournaments go down in the evening, so if you get there by 12, 1 o'clock, you basically can play the whole afternoon. A warning, though: There are a lot of arguments out there. [Laughs.] But on the flipside, there's always people on the fence, so it's a good place to play to get your rep up.
