One major update: The event will take place in Prospect Park, according to the NY Times:
It is official: Spike Lee’s party in honor of Michael Jackson’s birthday will be held in Brooklyn, but in Prospect Park, not in Fort Greene Park.
The party will take place at the Nethermead, a meadow in the center of Prospect Park, according to an e-mail message from a city official on Friday.
The date, Aug. 29, which would have been the singer’s 51st birthday, and the time, from noon to 5 p.m., remain unchanged.
decision to move the party came after several days of discussion on the
wisdom of holding it in the 30-acre Fort Greene Park because of the
large number of people expected.
