Shirley Chisolm – New York, New York

Brooklyn welcomed their first state park, Shirley Chisholm State Park on July 2, 2019. This park is named in honor of the Brooklyn born resident who was the first African American Congresswoman and the first woman and African American to run for president. We are very proud to have been part of the construction management team working to make the park’s initial phase opening possible. Governor Andrew Cuomo along with many other local officials aided in the ribbon cutting ceremony that unlocked the park offerings of 10 miles of biking and hiking trails, picnicking and children activities.
