Brooklyn Nets unveil renovated Joseph Miccio Community Center Fitness Room
On Wednesday, May 4, the Brooklyn Nets, with Good Shepherd Services, held a ribbon-cutting and unveiling of the newly renovated Joseph Miccio Community Center in NYCHA’s Red Hook Houses, a fitness center that was damaged and then closed after Hurricane Ida in 2021.
To commemorate the NBA’s 75th Anniversary, NBA teams around the country have been renovating spaces in their communities.
“We identified Miccio Community Center as our 75th Anniversary Legacy Project because we have seen first-hand their impactful work and saw the tremendous need for support,” said Mandy Gutmann, executive vice president of Community Relations and Communications at BSE Global, parent company of the Brooklyn Nets and Barclays Center.
“We saw the damage left by Hurricane Ida and knew we needed to help. Miccio’s work is vital to Red Hook and we are proud to join our incredible community partners who all helped bring our vision to life. We hope that together we can continue to use the power of sport to make a lasting, positive impact and that this fitness center will inspire those in the neighborhood.”
