An All Star Weekend

For the first time in 17 years, the NBA All Star Weekend took place in New York City.  The events were split between Madison Square Garden in midtown Manhattan and the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.  The family friendly weekend of basketball overlapped with New York Fashion Week and created much spectacle for celebrity sightings all over the city.  My family did not attend the game, but did visit pop-up shops like Token 38 that hosted NBA legends Shaquille O’Neal, Dominique Wilkins and Shawn Kemp among others. We also played basketball at the NBA House, located at Moynihan Station. The interactive space had multiple sections for practicing your basketball skills.  There were also autograph signings and “All Star” gear giveaways.
