The Cage

The West Fourth Street Courts, known as just "The Cage" is one of Courts of the World's most reviewed basketball courts. As you may guess, the court is enclosed in a metal cage. It's a bit smaller than a full regulation size court. It hosts a huge citywide "Streetball" amateur basketball tournament that is estimated to attract more than 100,000 fans each summer.

Player Comments

  1. “Went to play in April 2014, competition was decent and was cool because there were crowds of people watching through the 'cage'. Three quarters of the way through the game a fight broke out and a guy straight punched another guy in the nose, blood was in the key and we all just played on. I don't think that is the norm but was pretty crazy. The locals welcomed outsiders to play as I'm from Australia which was cool.” – Cammo (5 years ago)
  2. “Nobody was playing,just me.I asked and the answer was that it was a little bit chilly and people played indoor. Come on!! My impression:Soft players in that court because they don't play with no perfect weather condition!Nice place in the middle of the street but in October there was not a soul!!” – chemagic (6 years ago)
  3. “15 minute jumping training only but I did it in the Cage!” – paulcuck (7 years ago)
  4. “West 4th (The Cage) was legendary…today the courts are overcrowded with people waiting to play and those just watching…the level of competition isn't what it once was…league games are where the real competition happens at west 4th” – AirJayMe (8 years ago)
  5. “I can't wait. finally me and my family are going to New york for the holidays. This is a big chance for me to play on the legendary court: The cage.” – Roger01 (9 years ago)
