New York City Official Guide: Big Apple Travel Destinations, Holiday Ideas and Vacation Inspiration – September 21, 2017 at 11:03AM

West 4th Street’s iconic basketball court—colloquially called “the cage” because a 20-foot chain-link fence boxes players into a smaller-than-regulation playing surface—has been a proving ground for such NBA stars as Stephon Marbury and Anthony Mason. It’s been immortalized in film, print and video games. The tight quarters and talented teams make for fast-paced, ferocious competition in the court’s annual league, which explains why the crowd seldom fits within the court’s confines—surrounding sidewalks are constantly filled with fans eagerly awaiting the next alley-oop dunk or resounding rejection. The playground also features popular public handball courts. Discover more NYC moments like this through the hashtag #SeeYourCity! 📸: @am_i_rite_ladies_ for @nycgo⠀
