Jackie Robinson Museum Groundbreaking

A product of the hard work by the Jackie Robinson Foundation and the project team, we’re thrilled to share that we’ve broken ground on the Jackie Robinson Museum project!  Beyond a permanent tribute to Jackie Robinson’s pioneering legacy and role as a catalyst for the Civil Rights Movement, the Museum will serve as a venue for vibrant dialogue on critical social issues and as a destination for innovative educational programming. The Jackie Robinson Museum will commemorate the life and legacy of a true American hero through an exploration of his commitment to service and to the achievement of “first class citizenship” for all Americans. It will be a prominent stop on existing cultural routes in Lower Manhattan, just blocks from the Freedom Tower and 9/11 Memorial. Zubatkin has been working with the Jackie Robinson Foundation on the planning, design, and implementation strategy for this new museum. The project team includes Gensler as Design Architect and Ralph Appelbaum as Exhibition Designer. Additional information available in the NYTimes.
