A Brooklyn community is remembering one of their former residents who grew up to be a member of the Supreme Court.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg grew up in the Midwood section of the borough before making her way to Washington D.C. to service on the Supreme Court.
Ginsburg died at her home Friday after a long battle with cancer.
The longest serving woman on the United States Supreme Court was born and raised in Midwood. She attended Public School 238 as a child and graduated from James Madison High School.
Ginsburg also belonged to the East Midwood Jewish Center.
Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams took to Twitter Friday and called Ginsburg "a trailblazer and daughter of Brooklyn." He is pushing to rename the Brooklyn Municipal Building in her honor.
