Beastie Boys' Adam Yauch to be honored with skate park
Brooklyn Heights residents in New York are campaigning to honor late Beastie Boys star Adam Yauch by renaming a local skate park.
The locals want to pay tribute to the rapper, who lost his cancer battle earlier this month, by turning his local green spot, Squibb Park, into Adam Yauch Park.
The unnamed bloggers behind the viral campaign write, "Adam Yauch Park sits directly across the street from the Harry Chapin Playground, which is also named after a great Brooklyn Heights resident, musician and humanitarian."
News of the park honor comes a week after local government officials in New York prompted the state senate to pass a resolution which declared that it was mourning the death of Yauch, aka MCA.
