Via Borough President Eric Adams Change.org petition
In some not-terrible Supreme Court news, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg could be getting a Brooklyn Building named after her. Borough President Eric Adams launched a campaign on Thursday calling on City Hall to rename the Brooklyn Municipal Building after Ginsburg, a native of Flatbush. This past August marked Ginsburg’s 25th year as an associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, as only the second woman to sit on the court.
Though news this week has been focused on President Obama choosing Merrick Garland as the next Supreme Court justice, it’s Ruth Bader Ginsburg who’s been grabbing headlines for most of the recent past. And as Brownstoner recently pointed out, “the Notorious RBG, as Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is known to her fans, shares a home borough with the original Notorious title holder — the late rapper Biggie Smalls, aka the Notorious B.I.G.”
