Welcome To Brooklyn’s Adam Yauch Park

Hello #Brooklyn." target="_blank">http://twitter.com/search?q=%23Brooklyn">#Brooklyn. We're proud to announce that Adam Yauch Park is now open. #MCA" target="_blank">http://twitter.com/search?q=%23MCA">#MCA @beastieboys" target="_blank">http://twitter.com/beastieboys">@beastieboys pic.twitter.com/Z3b1eWouIr" target="_blank">http://t.co/Z3b1eWouIr">pic.twitter.com/Z3b1eWouIr

Brooklyn’s Palmetto Playground was renamed Friday in honor of Beastie Boys member Adam Yauch, who died of throat cancer in 2012 at age 47. At the dedication ceremony were New York City officials — including Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz — as well as Ad-Rock, Beastie Boys manager John Silva, and Yauch’s mother, who said that Yauch learned to ride a bike at the playground.

The New York Post has some background on how the renaming came about:

The movement to rename the park grew out of a post last year on the Brooklyn Heights Blog that gained steam on Facebook. At first, fans pushed to have nearby Squibb Park renamed in Yauch’s honor, but Brooklyn Heights residents said such a name change would dishonor pharmaceutical giant Edward Robinson Squibb. Squibb opened his first lab where Squibb Park now sits at Middagh Street.

Fans then pushed for the renaming of Palmetto Playground and were met with little opposition.
