Locals in the Brooklyn Heights community have banded together behind a common cause: honoring Adam ‘MCA’ Yauch, the much-loved, Brooklyn-raised Beastie Boy who succumbed to cancer earlier this month.

Residents created a Facebook group encouraging users to sign the petition to rename Squibb Park after Yauch; however, Beastie Boys Member Adam Horovitz and his wife Kathleen Hanna have slightly different wishes. As Hanna told the Brooklyn Heights Blog: “I just wanted to let you know that Adam ‘Ad-Rock’ Horovitz has already begun working with the Parks Commissioner to fix up and rename State Street Park where Yauch actually played as a kid.”

In response, the Facebook group has shifted its support towards achieving that end. In their words: “The Brooklyn Heights Blog community ENTHUSIASTICALLY supports this idea. We have updated the Facebook page to reflect this and encourage all those who agree, their friends, family and friends of friends to continue to “Like” the page and share our strong desire to make Adam Yauch Park in Brooklyn Heights a reality.”
