Brooklyn Park Renamed After MCA

Palmetto Playground in Brooklyn Heights was renamed this morning after fallen Beastie Boys member, Adam “MCA” Yauch. A year ago, MCA died from his bout with cancer.

For unspecified reasons, Mike D wasn’t in attendance. But here’s footage of Ad Rock, MCA’s mother and Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz at the ceremony.

  • The Facade

    Well deserved, Adam was a great artist, philanthropist and community leader.
    I’d argue that Biggie deserves his name on a park or building in Brooklyn too, but he certainly wasn’t as charitable in the community so I definitely get this move.

  • COOL..
