Thanks to the tireless efforts of City Councilman Robert Cornegy, who represents represents Bedford Stuyvesant and northern Crown Heights in New York, a basketball court will be renamed after The Notorious B.I.G. after years of vowing to make it happen. The new court name will be formally introduced at the Crispus Attucks Playground on Fulton Street and Classon Avenue in Bed-Stuy.
“Christopher Wallace’s music put Bedford-Stuyvesant on the map in a billion dollar global industry,” Cornegy said to DNAInfo New York. “I promised his mother, Ms. Voletta Wallace, I would preserve his legacy, so naming this park after him seems very fitting.”
The ceremony is scheduled to occur sometime in August 2017. This comes following the news that his “King Of NY” mural, on the corner of Bedford Avenue and Quincy Avenue, will not be taken down.
