Harlem Field Is Redone By Corporate Partners

Soccer players in Harlem are enjoying a brand new field, after Time Warner Cable Sports partnered with several other organizations to form “Operation Community Cup” to revitalize the field in Riverbank State Park. Members of the New York Red Bulls came out to conduct a clinic with the kids with a focus on how math and science play an important role in soccer. You can watch a great video including some of the kids at the clinic and the new field here.

Finding A Tennis Court In Manhattan

In a city of nine million people and fewer than 600 public tennis courts, it’s no wonder New York’s racket-toting masses often have to wait in line to play, only to get kicked off after an hour. The Wall Street Journal listed released this story about the upcoming court projects in the city and Harlem is getting two of the three upcoming renovations. The plan for the area is as follows, $700,000 to reconstruct four of eight popular hard courts at Frederick Johnson Park in Harlem (the other four were recently redone); and $400,000 for three decrepit hard courts and two basketball courts in Howard Bennett Playground, also in Harlem. We should have new courts ready for action by next spring! You can read the full story here.
