Adam Yauch Park opens

Ad Rock posted this pic via Twitter, saying "thanks to all that came out to Adam Yauch Park today". It opened one day before the first anniversary of Yauch's passing.

Via WSJ : "A New York City playground where the late Beastie Boy Adam Yauch learned to ride a bike as a child has been renamed in his honor.

City officials on Friday rechristened Brooklyn's Palmetto Playground as Adam Yauch Park. Yauch's parents and fellow Beastie Boy Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz attended the renaming ceremony.

The rapper known as "MCA" died last May at the age of 47 after a nearly three-year battle with cancer ... The playground includes full and half basketball courts, a community garden, a greenhouse, a small fitness area, an open play space, drinking fountains, and a dog run."
