The NBA All-Star game is coming to New York City this weekend, and Kanye West kicks off the festivities with a concert tonight in Flatiron.

A historical basketball court in northern New Jersey is getting an upgrade.
 
Officials in East Orange announced plans today to renovate the court at Elmwood Park. East Orange City Spokesman Darryl Jeffries said the goal is to rejuvenate the historical court. 
 
"It will be a comprehensive approach to rekindling a grand and glorious basketball tradition as well as to foster very wholesome fitness related activity," said Jeffries.
