BANGOR, Maine — Adam Moskovitz is the first to admit he’ll never be mistaken for a great basketball player, but he’s being credited for a huge assist to the city of Bangor and his Fairmount Park neighborhood.
Thanks to a private donation by Moskovitz, a Florida native who has been living in Maine the past nine years, the asphalt basketball half-court at the corner of Fairmount Street and Norway Road has gone from crumbling eyesore to a visible park centerpiece.
“I go by the court a lot and noticed it was in pretty rough shape, and at one point the idea just came to me to give back to the community I live in,” said Moskovitz, who moved to Norway Road from Forest Avenue last year. “In the back of my mind, I guess I’ve thought about it for several months, but it became a definite about three months ago. I had the means to do it, so why not do it?”
