Rainey Park

Rainey Park (to the south of Banana Kelly) used to be the 800 block of Kelly Street but by end of the 1970s it was a wasteland of vacant lots and derelict tenements. Community leader William F. Rainey (1920-1985) spearheaded an effort to convert the area into a large recreational park, which was posthumously renamed in his honor in 1991 (NYCDPR).
