How do we know that summer is finally in Jersey City? Jersey City Recreation Summer Basketball League is playing on the Hamilton Park court. A fancy led scoreboard announced the inaugural game was being held. Fun to see the kids having fun, the seriousness with which they -- and the parents on the sidelines -- take the competition did not seem to undermine the fun.
Businesses sponsor the games, their banners draped on the temporary barricades that align the perimeter of the court. Three Pizza Parlors! Carmine's pizza factory, piazza masters and paparazzi pizza! Long live our delicious if slightly greasy JC pizza! Chicken, burgers, chinese – where’s the community support? Well, I guess we know where our kids will be getting their summer carbohydrates.
