WSP Blog broke the story first but I’m happy that the NY Post covered the issue alerting people to this takeover of NYC public space in a story today. The event, the debut of Joseph Abboud’s new Fashion line, happens today, Monday, May 18th, from 6-8 p.m. at the W. 4th Street Courts. The popular basketball courts will be closed all day. At the Community Board 2 meeting where this information was revealed, the figure quoted as the amount Abboud, et al. paid for use of the courts was $17,000. The story quotes the amount as $14,100.
