Aubrey Graham, or as we know him, Drake, originally starred as Jimmy Brooks on Canadian TV Show Degrassi: The Next Generation. Drake’s character was a wheel-chair bound teen and thanks to New York City Parks Department, has become known as “Wheelchair Jimmy.”
NYC Parks Department has released plans to make Fort Greene Park in Brooklyn more accessible through a wheelchair ramp. The city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission also released a meme of “Wheelchair Jimmy.”

You can almost hear this agency spokesman singing as he told the New York Times:
Started at the bottom of Fort Greene Park’s signature hill, now we’re here with the final design, which takes care to create a more welcoming park entrance — with improved views.
Claps for the NYC Parks Department.
