Jackie Robinson Museum Coming to SoHo

2nd\NE Quadrant The Approval Matrix

It's full speed ahead for the Jackie Robinson museum being planned in SoHo [75 Varick Street]. Ralph Appelbaum, the designer behind the U.S. Holocaust Museum, will helm the Nike-funded project.

Yanks honcho George Steinbrenner and Mets owner Fred Wilpon each has made a seven-figure donation to the museum, which Robinson's widow calls "one of my last great dreams."

Bill Cosby, Clive Davis, Spike Lee, Jordin Sparks and George Lucas toasted the new endeavor Monday [March 3, 2008] night at the Jackie Robinson Foundation's annual awards dinner.
