Luncheon honors advocates for Humboldt Parkway restoration

Three people instrumental in the push to restore the Humboldt Park community by covering part of the Kensington Expressway to reunite divided neighborhoods will be honored at a luncheon at 11:30 a.m. Friday in the Adam's Mark Hotel.

The late Clarke E. Eaton, a Hamlin Park resident who helped establish the vision, and Assemblywoman Crystal Peoples-Stokes and former state Sen. Antoine Thompson, who pushed for funding to advance the idea, will be honored by the Restore Our Community Coalition, which formed to advocate for the project.

Humboldt Parkway was once part of a park system designed by Frederick Law Olmsted that extended from Delaware Park to the Science Museum and Parade Park (now Martin Luther King Jr. Park).

Luncheon tickets are $50 and available by calling 883-0529 or online at
