Using a Milk Crate as a Basketball Hoop

It just occurred to me that I don’t see this as much as I did when I was a kid in the 80s. Punching out the bottom of a milk crate and using it as a basketball hoop. I’m pretty sure this sort of thing was a common sight in NYC/inner-city neighborhoods.

Homelessness in NYC

Been a while since I’ve seen something like this in NY. Doesn’t seem as common a sight these days as when I was growing up, but I know it is still a reality for many.
