This playground and the adjoining high school honor William Grady who served as the Superintendent of High Schools for the New York City Board of Education in the 1930s. Working from his headquarters on Livingston Street, Grady was a constant advocate for technical studies in schools. Those who admired his commitment and achievements nicknamed him the ‘Father of Vocational Education’ in Brooklyn.
