2. Crispus Attucks Complex
Crispus Attucks is a historical figure, known to be the first black man killed during the Boston Massacre in 1770. In Luke Cage, Harlem councilwoman Mariah Dillard (Alfre Woodward), a cousin to Cottonmouth, is campaigning to get a building dedicated as the Crispus Attucks Complex, part of her New Harlem Renaissance project. This building is allegedly located at St. Nicholas Avenue and 128th Street based on the street signs but it is actually the former Fulton Correctional Facility prison at 171st Street and Fulton Avenue in the Bronx across from Crotona Park. As of 2015, it was planned for adaptive reuse into a “community re-entry center for ex-inmates,” reported the Commercial Observer, with an expected completion date of 2017, hence why it is open for film shoots in a rather raw state.
