The Westchester Knicks joined forces with Chase and the Village of Irvington to refurbish and repaint the Bobby Speisman Basketball Court at Scenic Hudson Park The basketball court was originally made possible by the Irvington community, Village of Irvington, and friends in memory of Bobby Speisman, the father of three daughters, who was a passenger on American Airlines Flight 77 which was flown into the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001.

The project culminated with a grand re-opening ceremony, featuring special guest speakers, a ribbon cutting ceremony, and a free youth clinic. Bobby Speisman’s family was on hand for the event, as were New York Knicks Legends John Starks and Larry Johnson.
