Another statue of the late United States Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is coming to Brooklyn next year. After Ginsburg’s death last month, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced plans to honor the New York City native with a statue in the borough, likely in Brooklyn Bridge Park. And last week artists Gillie and Marc Schattner announced plans to install another statue of Ginsburg at mixed-use development City Point in Downtown Brooklyn.

Downtown Brooklyn’s City Point is pulling out all the stops to boost its cool factor. The 1.8-million-square-foot mixed-use development at 445 Albee Square West is already home to the subterranean food mecca known as Dekalb Market Hall as well as the popular dine-in cinema-slash-supper-club Alamo Drafthouse. City Point recently announced the additions of a speakeasy-style cocktail bar called Understudy within the food court and Dekalb Stage, a 7,500-square-foot events and live entertainment space just next door.
