Spike Lee’s Michael Jackson Birthday Party Is Moving to Prospect Park


After widespread alarm by citizens and city officials about “crowd control” and potential chaos in Fort Greene around Spike Lee’s Michael Jackson tribute block party next weekend, the city announced today that event will move from Fort Greene Park to the center of Prospect Park. Jackson is no longer being buried on his birthday, as originally planned, but Brooklyn will apparently make a go of it regardless. [NYTimes]
