McCaffrey Park in Hell's Kitchen, Manhattan
Local Basketball Pride
Within a week of moving to my new home in Hell’s Kitchen I was part of a neighborhood improvement project. Project Backboard is a non-profit dedicated to the renovation of public basketball courts around the country. They announced their latest renovation with a video of the design artist Andrea Bergart shooting hoops at the court. In the video I could see my apartment tower in the near distance. Kismet. So each morning I volunteered to help paint and document the process on 35mm film. Kodak TMax400 film gives the photos a moment in time feel. Which fits the experience, as I was welcomed in by the install team (Edwin, Pancho, Nick and Sam) and the artist Andrea. Renovating a court is labor. It’s not intense, but it requires time, patience, and a lot of bending over. But the further you go, creativity starts to seep into the process and new challenges arise that transform the labor into making art. As the colors are put down, the court slowly comes alive. Parents would be in the park and shout affirmations. Children on recess would peer through the fence, glance at the rendering posted by NYC Parks, and then look back at the court with wonder in their eyes. It was clear the impact on this park would be immediate. The court has already become a place of congregation. I’d talked to people in the neighborhood who said this court wasn’t a place for pick-up. But, in the weeks since we finished I’ve seen and played in several runs. McCaffrey Park is activated. Come get a bucket.
