About

Jackie Robinson, #42, Lived Here

Jackie Robinson lived on the top floor of this house from 1947-1948 from property owner Eleanor Palin. It needs some preservation. The New York Times Magazine, 4/28/13, at p. 19, states that there is a movement to have New York City declare it a landmark. There is an article about the building at http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/brooklyn/feuding-fate-jackie-robinson-home-base-e-flatbush-article-1.1315409. The article shows a real-life plaque/marker on the building.
