2. West Fourth Street Courts
Where: Ave. Of Americas, W. 3 St. and W. 4 St.
Neighborhood: Greenwich Village
Coming in at a close second are the West Fourth Street Courts. Also known as "the Cage" because of its smaller-than-regulation courts, the people who ball here aren't afraid to get down and dirty. In fact, because of its size and the fact that these courts bring in the best of the best (hey there, Dr. J), those sitting out will probably rarely get to play. Regardless, we promise the hoopin' that goes down here is some of the most intense streetball you'll ever see.
