Jackie Robinson’s house in Brooklyn may get official landmark status. The current owners support the effort being led by Councilmember Jumaane Williams. Robinson played for the Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbets Field, which was torn down in 1960 and now is home to an apartment complex.

The councilmember will introduce a bill which will have to be approved by council and the landmark commission.
