Help Our Hoops… Mission Accomplished!

The Friends of Washington Market Park spearheaded a campaign to raise $6500 in March and April 2013 to replace the three backboards on our Chambers Street court.  Thank you, Tribeca, for making it happen! The new backboards were installed on May 29th.

The Friends of Washington Market Park thanks all the neighbors, players, parents, kids and hoop fans who gave donations to the park to install our three new basketball backboards and hoops. We had small donations and big donations, from 8-year-olds who shoot hoops with their fourth-grade classmates and guys who call themselves ‘Clyde.’ All those came together to help us reach our goal within a few weeks.

We also thank all the local media –Tribeca Citizen, HRP Mamas, The Tribeca Trib, The Broadsheet and the Downtown Express – for helping us get the word out; and Reitdesign, for giving our cause a great image.

We know you did this for Tribeca, but parks are for all, and this is also your contribution to our city.

The new backboards and hoops are scheduled to be installed on Wednesday, May 29. Come by and check out the action courtside. And from then on, enjoy the new hoops that you built.

Thank you. You have made a lasting contribution to the park, the neighborhood and everyone who plays here. Listen for the sound of swish!

Sincerely,
Erica Martini and Jennifer Van Zandt
