Tune Squad Court in Brooklyn: personal experience
Sadly I missed the opening, because I flew back to Italy on June 4. Anyway I had the chance to stop by Tune Squad Court on Dec 31. It was freezing, the temperature was about 35,6 °F, but it was early morning and the court was empty. I took advantage of the situation to tape some videos and take some pictures. I promised to myself to come back, hoping for the sun and a better weather.
The second attempt was only two days later. Despite the cold temperature, the sun was shining and I spent a while walking up and down to look for the best place to shot a panoramic picture. The on-court mural is stunning and breathtaking, the colorful Warnes Bros’ characters are really impressive. Tune Squad Court in Brooklyn is an unmissable attraction for young people, adults and basketball lovers.
Concerning Brooklyn, in this article, I relate my experience at Barclays Center.
