“The Gate of the Exonerated” will remember how the Central Park Five were attacked and raped in 1989.

New Fence With Placard

“The Gate of the Exonerated” will be on 110th Street between Fifth Avenue and Malcom X Blvd. at the north end of Central Park.

Workers are building a new fence with placards about the Central Park Five.

Central Park Conservancy spokeswoman: “Today’s unanimous vote commemorates the Exonerated Five and other unfairly condemned people.”

The Central Park Conservancy has worked with the Harlem neighbourhood for over 40 years, and we are happy to have brought the Gate of the Exonerated to life in a manner that shows Central Park is for everyone.

The Public Design Commission approved the concept, which will be revealed on Dec. 19.
