Let's Name the Former Phipps Playground After Sunnyside's Local Hero, Firefighter Michael R. Davidson

Mayor Bill de Blasio, NYC Parks Commissioner Mitchell J. Silver, and Queens Borough Parks Commissioner Dorothy Lewandowski:

We support naming Sunnyside's new park in honor of FDNY Firefighter Michael R. Davidson. The site of the former Phipps Playground, located on the corner of 39th Avenue and 50th Street in Sunnyside, will soon become a city park. FDNY Lieutenant Michael R. Davidson was tragically killed on March 22, 2018 trying to save others in a fire at a Manhattan building that was being used as a movie set. Michael's boyhood home was across the street from the Former Phipps Playground. As a preschooler, Michael attended the Outdoor Nursery of the Phipps Playground. He lived here throughout his childhood, while attending St. Sebastian's Catholic Academy and Archbishop Molloy High School. He was born and raised in Sunnyside, attended our local schools and he has a direct connection with this park. Please support this fitting tribute to Sunnyside's Bravest, Michael R. Davidson.
