This playground honors Louis H. Pink (1882-1955), a committed civic reformer and an early advocate of creating government-subsidized, low-rent housing. As part of his extensive record of civil service he acted as the state insurance superintendent, the chairman of the New York State Housing Board, and wrote several books including The New Day in Housing (1928), the first volume on modern community housing to be published in the United States. This playground was built to provide recreation facilities for the local residents of the adjacent Louis H. Pink Houses.
