“Brooklyn_the Creative Capital of New York City_has made so many great contributions to music and the arts, and in the world of hip hop, they don’t come much bigger than Brooklyn native Adam `MCA’ Yauch and his fellow Beastie Boys. … Of course, Adam’s home borough was immortalized in the Beastie Boys’ 1987 hit, `No Sleep Till Brooklyn,’ and he never forgot where he came from with lyrics like `Open Letter to NYC’s‘ `At lunch I’d go to Blimpies down on Montague Street and hit the Fulton Street Mall for the sneakers on my feet.’ The thoughts and prayers of Brooklynites and music fans everywhere are with Adam’s wife, Dechen Wangdu, and their daughter, Tenzin Losel, during this difficult time.” _ Marty Markowitz, Brooklyn Borough President.
