The community hub, which had fallen into disrepair in recent years, got a much-needed facelift that was finished earlier this month.
Local leaders, including City Councilman Al Vann, got to cut the ribbon for the occassion.
“The scope and success of this revitalization project exemplifies our community’s commitment to showcasing our many assets so that long-term residents, newcomers and visitors can experience Bedford-Stuyvesant at its best,” said Vann. “The investments and improvements that were part of this project were designed to benefit all segments of our community, from the entrepreneur and the property owner to the low-income renter and the transit-rider."
The $20 million project sought to revitalize an oft-used portion of Fulton Street, and includes streetscape improvements, public art installations and plazas with free and open WiFi access.
