There’s a new sculpture garden coming to Fort Greene.
The Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (MoCADA) filed an application that is going in front of the Landmarks Preservation Commission on February 5 to install fencing, paving and electrical outlets for a sculpture garden at a thin, empty lot at 48 Lafayette Avenue.
It’s across from the soon-to-be-revamped BAM Park, and the application calls for the removal of two existing trees, replacing the existing fence and the addition of a new asphalt surface. Next door is the Hanson Place Seventh-Day Adventist School at 38 Lafayette Avenue.
The lot was once used for car parking but has been empty for years.
Long a fixture of the community, MoCADA, which is located at 80 Hanson Place, will soon be opening a new space as one of the cultural organizations at 300 Ashland Place.
