Adam Horovitz is working to have a Brooklyn park named after late Beastie Boy Adam Yauch.
Horovitz’s wife and Bikini Kill and Le Tigre frontwoman Kathleen Hanna has posted on Facebook page ‘Rename Squibb Park in Brooklyn Heights to Honor Adam Yauch’.
She reveals that Adam ‘Ad-Rock’ Horovitz is working with the Parks Commissioner to get a different park named after Adam ‘MCA’ Yauch as a tribute to the late rapper, filmmaker and activist.
Squibb Park is named for inventor and pharmaceutical pioneer Dr. Edward Robinson Squibb and is currently being remodeled as a skate park.
Hanna says that they would rather keep Squibb’s name on that park and rename State Street Park for Yauch, a place where he actually played as a child.
She writes: “I just wanted to let you know that Adam “Adrock” Horovitz has already begun working with the Parks Commissioner to fix up and rename State Street Park where Yauch actually played as a kid to ‘Adam Yauch Park’.”
“It would be great to get people behind THIS idea as it won’t hurt the Squib family and it would be awesome to fix up the bball court there as a tribute….Thanks, Kathleen Hanna (Adrock’s wife).”
