Safe Summer NYC initiative will refurbish 15 basketball courts at NYCHA complexes

As part of its Safe Summer NYC initiative to combat gun violence, the NYPD is partnering with different groups to refurbish basketball courts across the city in public housing developments. 

Fifteen basketball courts at New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) complexes will be restored by August under the program, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Tuesday. He said the swift timeline will allow for kids to enjoy a safe sports outlet this summer.
