Basketball City Floors Ruined By Hurricane Sandy

Basketball City; June 2012.

It’s been a tough month for Bruce Radler, the owner of Basketball City, the brand new recreational facility on Pier 36.  Hurricane Sandy completely destroyed the wood floors that were installed over the summer on seven courts.  Last night, Radler told a committee of Community Board 3 that new floors had been ordered. Installation will begin next week and will hopefully be completed shortly after the New Year.  The good news, he said, is that the building (located at the end of Montgomery Street) did not suffer any structural damage. This photo was taken during the summer when Basketball City had its official opening after years of delays.  We’ll be getting a first hand look at the damage next week and will have more details about the repair project.
