Oh yeah. The city/parks dept. resurfaced those courts several years ago, right?

Good for you, if true.

When you think about it, $200 is really not a lot of money for most people, though it may be for some. As long as you get a court/get to play, it seems like a good investment. But I know, not everybody does.

If the thread starter in Greenpoint drives, he or she can just go up the BQE for 10-15 min to Astoria. I'm sure there's a bus (or even the N or R subway, with or with out the bus) that goes there as well? Of course, that way will take longer. But they should check it out/look into it.

I thought McCarren Park in Williamsburg/Greenpoint, was getting tennis courts in the future, along with their recently refurbished pool?
