Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams wants to remind people where Flatbush-born Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg came from by launching a campaign to rename the Brooklyn Municipal Building.

“The life of Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a quintessential New York story,” Adams said, according to the New York Post. “She rose to the apex of her profession, staying true to her ideals and principles. [Justice] Ginsburg has become an icon, affectionately referred to as the ‘Notorious RBG.’”

Ginsburg has spent 25 years on the bench since her appointment by President Bill Clinton in 1993.https://therealdeal.com/wp-admin/media-new.php

The Brooklyn Municipal Building was built in 1924 at a cost of $5.8 million, according to the New York City Department of Citywide Administrative Services. The Manhattan Municipal Building was previously named in honor of former mayor David Dinkins.

Last year, Ginsburg ruled with the majority of the court in a decision that could allow cities to sue banks for violating the Fair Housing Act. [NYP]—Will Parker
