Rivington Court Debuts on Rivington Street
Rivington Court officially opened yesterday afternoon behind the Marta Valle/Lower East Side Prep school with a kickoff party. As we first reported last week, the Nike-sponsored temporary basketball court and its complementary bleachers will remain on the Lower East Side through the end of summer.
The grand opening was met with excitement by a horde of youngsters, now on summer break. Music was spinning throughout the day, audible across the neighborhood. Food trucks present – Feed Your Hole and Mister Softee. But the event also doubled as promo launchpad for a new line of Nike kicks – the Air Force 1 “Digi-Camo.”
This community basketball program is arranging a host of tournaments in the next six-ish weeks. If we were any good at shooting hoops, the news would be that much better.
