Through Basketball, Harlem’s EBC Rucker Park Opens Eyes To A Brighter Future

By Brittany Alvarado

Harlem’s EBC Rucker Park is stuff of legends. Everyone from Kobe to Dr. J to Kareem has played basketball on this historic court.

Located off of 155th St., the court also serves as a refuge for young people who might find it easy to get caught up in drugs, gangs, and other negative influences.

We made the trek to the northern tip of Manhattan to get the scoop on what the court brings to the community, and what the community brings to the court.
