Dorrance Brooks Square Historic District for future review which is definitely a positive step going forward. The area in question starts at the triangular park which surrounds the north east entrance of the 135th Street station at St. Nicholas Park.
Dorrance Brooks was a beloved local black soldier who died in service during the first World War and Harlem honored his memory with the naming of the park. The immediate blocks north of the green space up until 140th Street would then be protected along with the blocks just south of Strivers Row below 138th Street. This will also be the first NYC historic district named after an African-American.
