    A highlight of the evening included special recognition for Professor Crea, who turned 100 years old in April, with his presentation featuring the reading of a congratulatory letter from President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama. Adding extra light and joy to the event was a very special moment in which guests then held up illuminated flashlights and sang “Happy Birthday” as Dean Allard presented Professor Crea with a cake.

    As the gala event came to a close, guests were treated to a spectacular fireworks display over New York Harbor, sponsored by Cushman and Wakefield. Guests were able to view the fireworks as they remained on Ellis Island, taking in the inspiring views of the Statue of Liberty and the New York City skyline, or as they enjoyed their ferry ride departure.

    “I couldn’t help but think of how appropriate it was for that party to be held on Ellis Island,” said distinguished guest I. Leo Glasser, U.S. District Court Judge for the Eastern District of New York and former Brooklyn Law School Dean, tying together our historic and unique event space and Brooklyn Law School’s history as a gateway of opportunity for immigrants and children of immigrants. “The feeling was almost palpable that those immigrant ancestors were looking down on that glorious gathering, smiling and thinking that their dream of achieving a better life was not a dream after all.”
