Basketball games, New York City, Washington or Virginia area - New York City

You can see basketball in NYC - but it will be playground basketball - not professional - although many of the players in these leagues are not far off professional. The classic is the Rucker League - in a playground at 155th St and Frederick Douglass Blvd. No info at this point on dates but you should check when you arrive to see if they are playing while you are here. Very much a neighborhood activity but fans come from all over the city. Many famous players have started here but it's a different style than college b'ball. (My brother was a b'ball player and as an adult he and friends would play in suburban playgrounds but the rules are very different - as in "no blood, no foul" and there is a whole lot of offense and very little defense.)
