I would like to introduce to you, the “Lou Gehrig Plaza”. This park peacefully sits in between of the Bronx Supreme Court and Joyce Kilmer Park, which is a bigger park that sits right next door.
There are a couple of interesting things that we should know about this eleven year old park. One, if you are like me and you are a resident in the area, than you will know that this used to be a small parking lot. Another thing is, ceremonies, and performances are hosted here in this plaza all the time by Bronx officials and artists, especially during the summer time. You can “Like” the Facebook page for further information on the events. Lastly, who is Lou Gehrig? Originally known as Henry Louis Gehrig, he was baseball’s first baseman and played with the New York Yankee team for more than fifteen seasons straight!
Well there you have it folks! I’d love to hear more from you guys! Have you seen this spot yet?
