26 year-old wanting to learn basketball fundamentals basically from scratch in NY. How do I even start?

I am resolving to relearn how to play basketball well enough to play in a social sports league and, at the very least, not be a sucking embarrassment/worst guy on the team.
Haven't played seriously since I was 14 or 15, not sure if I could even sink a jump shot or dribble with correct form, etc. Not in great shape either.
Yes, I realize I can watch youtube videos and learn basics but I'm trying to keep this NY specific, so: Where would I even start? Looks like most basketball clinics around here are for kids. Are their personal trainers that do this? Places to shoot around alone at least (seems like every open court is having a pickup game)?
NY basketball players, any advice?
