Brooklyn-born Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders (I–Vermont) will finally make a public appearance in his hometown on Friday, hosting rallies outside his childhood home in Midwood and in a waterfront park in Greenpoint.
The James Madison High School alum — who is in town ahead of the April 19 New York primary — will first host an event sometime after 1 pm outside the building where he spent his formative years, on the corner of E. 26th Street and Kings Highway, joined by Hollywood’s “The Hulk” Mark Ruffalo.
He will then head to Transmitter Park on the Greenpoint waterfront sometime after 3 pm to give a speech with legendary actress and Clinton Hill homeowner Susan Sarandon.
Both events are free and open to the public, but will be first come, first served.
