4. St. Nicholas Playground South
When Misty Knight (Simone Missick), an NYPD detective (and romantic interest for Luke Cage), tries to get some information from some of the kids from the neighborhood, she challenges one of them to a game of Horse. She wins, revealing that back in the day, she was a real baller. The basketball court is located in St. Nicholas Playground South on Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard and 128th Street. You can see the Salem United Methodist Church and NYCHA’s Saint Nicholas housing project in the background.
