Brooklyn Park Renamed

As we stated in a previous post, 176X won the contest for the best apartment design (individual) for their stunning Tipton Apartment #7. According to 176X teacher Jessica Hawk,

“We are excited to finally announce that we’ve come to a unanimous decision in regards to what we would like our prize area and name to be.

We’ve chosen Brooklyn Park and would like to call it “Hawk’s Nest” as a tribute to our family 3D world name.”

So requested, so done.

Be sure to stop by Hawk’s Nest park during the Block Party to enjoy all the rides and attractions!
