This large play area, located between Belmont, Pitkin and Pennsylvania Avenues and Vermont Street, was named Grace Playground on August 23, 1997 in memory of three graceful members of the Grace Baptist Church of Christ and of the East New York community: Deacon Major Cunningham and the sisters Dorothy Lee Corley Jacobs and Shirley Corley Justice. Deacon Major Cunningham (1924-1994) was born in Honea Path, South Carolina and made his home in Brooklyn. He was a charter member of the Grace Baptist Church of Christ and served as First Chairman of the Board of Deacons and Assistant School Teacher to the adult class.
