Ocean Hill Playground

This playground is named for the Ocean Hill residential section of Brownsville, Brooklyn founded in 1890. Over the past century, the area has been home to members of Italian, African, Caribbean, and Latin American descent. The 1960s gave rise to an experimental community-controlled school district project and the 1970s saw an increase in the rise of vacant lots following the abandoning of houses and the damage and destruction caused by arson during the 1977 blackout. Ocean Hill is currently undergoing revitalization and consists primarily of two-family and four-family houses.
