A scene from the Sunset Park High School walk-out.

News that Sunset Park high schoolers walked out of class for the “Day Without Immigration” and that a new Made in NY campus is slated for Sunset Park were two of ten top stories of the week in Brooklyn.

Sunset Park students were the latest to take a stand against President Donald Trump’s controversial travel ban and recent increasing arrests and raids made by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

In response to a “Day Without Immigrants,” a movement that encouraged businesses, schools and others to close in solidarity on Thursday, February 16, hundreds of students left class at Sunset Park High School, 153 35th Street, and took to the streets, holding signs and chanting that they won’t be divided.

Meanwhile, Mayor Bill de Blasio and members of New York’s fashion, film, and television industries showed up at Sunset Park’s Bush Terminal, 13 42nd Street, on Tuesday, February 14 to announce that the historic building will be converted into a Made in New York campus, which is slated to be completed in three years and create over 1,000 jobs.

Here are 8 other top stories of the week in Brooklyn:
