A stretch of Brooklyn’s Fulton Street where a massive Black Lives Matter mural was painted will be turned into a pedestrian plaza for the rest of the summer, according to local officials.
This drone footage was taken on June 16 and shows the mural, which is painted between Marcy and Brooklyn Avenues. Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Monday, June 15 that the ban on cars from that section of Fulton Street would last for the duration of the summer.
A similar mural had previously been painted in Washington DC, several blocks from the White House.
The Brooklyn version was painted outside the Billie Holiday Theatre in Restoration Plaza, and reportedly measured 375 feet in length. Credit: Juan Manuel De la Quintana via Storyful
