The tributes keep coming in for late Beastie Boys emcee Adam Yauch. Just last weekend, 'MCA Day' took place in New York's Union Square, while the state's senators took a moment to recognize Yauch on the floor with a resolution recognizing his musical and philanthropic accomplishments. Billboard reports that the residents of Brooklyn have now started a Facebook petition to have the city's Squibb Park renamed in honor of Yauch, who grew up in Brooklyn Heights.

The park is currently undergoing renovations to become a skateboarding facility. The Beastie Boys have long showed their support of skateboarding in their videos and merchandising, with Vision, Think Skateboard and 5 Boro Skateboards all having ties to the band over the years.

Incidentally, the park would be located right next to another city establishment named for a musician, as Harry Chapin Playground sits close by.

Yauch passed away on May 4 at the age of 47 after a several-year battle with throat cancer. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in late April as a member of the Beastie Boys, but was unable to attend due to his ailing health. He did, however, send a touching letter he wrote that bandmates Adam Horowitz and Michael Diamond read, which served as a touching farewell when the Rock Hall ceremony broadcast aired on HBO right after his death.
