DOIN’ IT IN THE PARK: PICK-UP BASKETBALL NYC lovingly uncovers this movement through the voices of playground legends, NBA athletes, and most importantly the common ballplayer who all day looks forward to calling “next” game at their local schoolyard.
Co-directors Bobbito Garcia and Kevin Couliau visited 180 courts throughout NYC’s five boroughs to create their debut documentary. They traveled to a majority of the locations by bicycle, carrying camera equipment and a ball in their backpacks. The film’s title refers as much to the subject matter as it does to the method of filmmaking, providing an unprecedented perspective on urban America’s most popular, and accessible, free recreation.

DJ Juanyto Hot97 DJ Takeover Funkmaster Flex Show
Brooklyn’s changing again. Some call it a renaissance. Others are too busy with the rent hikes to call it anything. We’re in the thick of it here at Eastern District so we deemed it “necessary” to address such pressing issues with a “critical” art show. Eastern District Gallery proudly presents: East Williamsburg , because defining reality is sometimes harder than choosing a color for your fixie. The show is being produced by the E.D. Clan: CA$H 4, Juan Doe, Jim Kiernan, Lucas McGowen, NohJColey, and Poster Boy BANK$Y, yes the Poster Boy BANK$Y. Show opens Friday, March 12 at 7pm. There will be free drinks and a live DJ, but no parking. Sorry, a parking garage has yet to grace our lovely community, so you might have to take the L train to the Morgan stop in Brooklyn. 43 Bogart St.
Please Join us for a Eastern District X Public School Exhibit tonight from 7-10pm. Please RSVP at
