"Hoops"- Street basketball is a common happening in the schoolyards of New York City. These models were some of my former students from the High School of Art and Design, where I taught. The background; an old school at W.102nd St. and Amsterdam Av., I.S. 44. schoolyard at W. 77th St., and the back of a W. 89th St. tenement, are from my upper west side New York City neighborhood.
