Tucker Place Park

Wedged between the fishing piers and a bait store, Tucker Place Park is a tiny bit of land (1/10 of an acre) alongside Sheepshead Bay.

Located at the corner of 27th Street and Emmons Avenue, it is named for J. Driscoll Tucker, a hard-drinking Brooklyn politician once known as the “Mayor of Sheepshead Bay.”

The little park contains a drinking fountain, some flowers, a few benches and, on a good day, a couple of sunny little faces.

    Lovely photos. Why is the no feeding sign in Russian? Are there other bilingual signs in the neighbourhood?
