Russell Pedersen Playground

There are some parks and playgrounds in New York City that are named, not for historical celebrities or nearby streets, but for a local resident, a person who became identified with the park simply through their efforts to make it a better place for the neighborhood. Russell Pedersen (1947-1968), once a frequent volunteer in the playground that now bears his name, was one such generous spirit.
