Martin Luther King Jr Boulevard

The former Grove Street was renamed  Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to honor the civil rights leader of the 20th century in 1997. A statue of Dr. King stands on the street in front of the Westchester  County Court House. It was dedicated  on January 15, 2007 and was created by Milton L. Sherrill.

Nearby, the Martin Luther King Jr. Freedom Library is located at the Thomas H. Slater Center at 2 Fisher Court and is run by the Westchester Martin Luther King Jr. Institute of 250 Bryant Avenue. Information about the organization and library can be found at http://www.mlkwestchester.org.
