City to rename Brooklyn Municipal Building after Ruth Bader Ginsburg

The city will rename the Brooklyn Municipal Building on Joralemon Street after the late United States Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Tuesday. “We want to make sure we honor her in every conceivable way and especially in the borough that she came from that gave her so much of her strength and spirit, the borough of Brooklyn,” de Blasio said at his Sept. 22 press briefing. “So today I’m proud to announce that we will rename the Brooklyn Municipal Building after Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.” Hizzoner said the rechristened building at the corner of Court Street will inspire locals by paying tribute to a Brooklynite who became a trailblazer in the nation’s highest court. – AMNewYork.
