Small Turf Field at MLK Campus NYC THE ATHLETIC FIELD: MLK HIGH SCHOOL Martin Luther King, Jr. High School in New York City in its decade’s long history has never had any outdoor playing surface for sports and physical education. Proposals have been presented to the City and major corporations. The project was awarded $300,000 in initial funding in April, 2015, by the New York City Council. The funding is dedicated to building a turf field on the back terrace at the Martin Luther King, Jr. High School Campus. Although more grants and funds are needed to complete this project, the award will go a long way in the development of an area that will benefit our school children and youngsters in our community.
