Major Owens Health Center officially opens in Crown Heights

Elected officials officially cut the ribbon on the Major R. Owens Health and Wellness Center on Oct. 27, marking the official opening of the recreational facility in the Bedford-Union Armory building in Crown Heights. 

The project, mired in controversy since it was first pitched to Crown Heights residents, is thought of as a legacy-defining project for outgoing Councilmember Laurie Cumbo, who spoke emotionally about the long planning process at the opening ceremony.
