Improvements totaling $25,000 include court resurfacing, new backboards and new padding to all the poles. Work begins July 2nd.

County Executive Mangano stated, “I thank CHASE and the New York Knicks for their corporate generosity and for truly inspiring young fans to participate in sports. From beautiful new surfaces to new backboards and padding of poles, these renovated basketball courts provide new athletic and recreational opportunities for our youth.”

Legislative Minority Leader Kevan Abrahams stated, “This is a great example of the great things that can be done for our parks and our communities like Roosevelt when we engage in private public partnership. This is a great day for the Roosevelt community and a terrific upgrade for the alreadybeautiful Rev. Arthur Mackey, Sr. Park.”

As part of a community program entitled “Basketball in the Boroughs and Beyond,” CHASE and the New York Knicks refurbish basketball courts and conduct clinics for the general public in communities throughout the tri-state area. The initiative features a free basketball clinic, player visits and a theme night at a Knicks game. The goal of the program is to grow and develop basketball participation and fundamentals, physical fitness, promote healthy lifestyles and well-being for children in the region.
