10. Freedom Place
Behind Trump Place, Freedom Place, runs from 66th to 70th Streets just west of West End Avenue. It commemorates Andrew Goodman, Michael Schwerner, and James Chaney, who on June 21, 1964 were murdered in Philadelphia, Mississippi, where they had been helping African-Americans register to vote as part of the Freedom Summer project. Chaney was a black man from Mississippi and Schwerner and Goodman were Jews from New York City. The three young civil rights activists had been traveling together when they were abducted by members of the Ku Klux Klan.
A new plaque replaced a prior one, but the community was also promised a monument as part of the new development, but it has yet to materialize and likely never will.
