The Gate of the Exonerated, honoring the Exonerated 5 and others who have been wrongfully convicted of crimes, was unveiled yesterday in the northeast corner of Central Park.
Three members of the Exonerated 5—Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana and Kevin Richardson—took part in the ceremony.
They along with Antron McCray and Korey Wise were wrongfully convicted in the 1989 Central Park jogger case and exonerated in 2002.
“The Gate of the Exonerated symbolizes the resiliency of the Exonerated Five and all those who have been wrongfully convicted and serves as a lasting reminder of the grave miscarriage of justice that took place more than three decades ago," said Mayor Eric Adams.
The gate is the result of two years of advocacy by the Harlem community, including Manhattan Community Board 10.
Find the new gate midblock on 110th Street between Malcolm X Boulevard and Fifth Avenue.
