Prospect Park Alliance Welcomes Juneteenth Way
June 18, 2021
Today Prospect Park Alliance kicked off the restoration of Lefferts Historic House with a celebratory event led by Parks Commissioner Mitchell Silver, Prospect Park Alliance President Sue Donoghue, Majority Leader Laurie Cumbo and Council Member Mathieu Eugene, who joined civic leaders and community members. The occasion was marked with two unveilings: the designation of the path across from Lefferts as "Juneteenth Way," and a site-specific installation produced in partnership with Photoville, "Jamel Shabazz: Prospect Park, My Brooklyn Oasis."
