Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg Signs Legislation Renaming 94 Streets

May 5, 2004

Remarks by Mayor Bloomberg at a Public Hearing on Local Law

"The last bill before me is Intro. Number 281-A, sponsored by Council Members Vann, Boyland, Fidler, Gentile, Gerson, Katz, Koppell, Lopez, Speaker Miller, McMahon, Monserrate, Moskowitz, Oddo, Provenzano, Reed, Reyna, Weprin, Avella, Barron, Jackson, James, Liu, Quinn, Addabbo, Jr., Dilan, Felder, Gallagher, Gennaro, Gonzalez, Jennings, Perkins, Seabrook, Sears, Serrano, Lanza and Yassky.

"This bill renames 94 thoroughfares and public places throughout the City. The first 41 names that I will read are streets or thoroughfares renamed in honor of those who died on September 11th. Even though over two and a half years have passed since that tragic event, this action, although a modest gesture, will let it be known that the City will never forget those who perished that day.

"I will now read the first 41 names of civilians, firefighters and police officers who died on September 11th.
