Brooklyn Park Dedicated To Late Beastie Boy Adam Yauch

Adam Yauch Park BrooklynPalmetto Playground in New York was filled with fans, friends and family of late Beastie Boy Adam Yauch today when it was re-named in his honor a year after his death on May 4, 2012.

Fellow B-Boy Adam Horovitz remembered Yauch for his warm personality and individuality as a musician at the Brooklyn playground on Columbia Place & State Street, now called “Adam Yauch Park,” where his friend and bandmate learned to ride his bike as a kid.

“It’s fitting that we’re here today to dedicate a playground to Adam Yauch, because like the Wu-Tang Clan, Beastie Boys are for the children,” Horovitz joked. “I’d like to thank the New York Parks Department and the people of Brooklyn for honoring my friend and brother and recognizing how cool it is to have an Adam Yauch Park for other crazy New York kids.”

Anderson Cooper came out as a gay man just last month, but had long been seeing bar owner Ben Maisani (far left).

They had been dating for around three years, lived together, and were reportedly considering marriage and adoption.

Unless they  broke up, Ben has some explaining to do. He was spotted holding hands and making out with a mystery man in a New York park yesterday.

Much like Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders’ affair, there is photographic evidence.

After Anderson announced his sexuality to the world, close friend Kathy Griffin told him to “be careful.” I know this probably isn’t exactly what she meant, but ouch.  Continue reading “Anderson Cooper’s Boyfriend Caught Kissing Another Man”
