Sacre Bleu! The French Are Coming! (To Brooklyn!)

To honor the 250th anniversary of the birth of the Marquis de Lafayette, a group of French-Americans, with the support of the Consulate General of France, raised funds for the restoration of the Lafayette Monument in Prospect Park, Brooklyn.

This Thursday, October 11 at 11 a.m., an assemblée (bunch) of dignitaries including NYC Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe; the Consul General of France in New York Francois Delattre; that old French fox B.P. Marty Markowitz; the Prospect Park Alliance and more will celebrate the restauration of the monument at the 9th Street and Prospect Park West entrance to the Park.

It should be a jolly célébration!
