A Maspeth street was renamed for a former police officer who passed away last year from the after effects of working at Ground Zero.
Kevin Czartoryski, who died in 2010 at 46, was honored on Sunday, April 29 with the renaming of the street he lived on when he passed. He suffered from pulmonary fibrosis.
Fifty ninth road off 60th Street in Maspeth will now be known as Detective Kevin Czartoryski Place.
Hundreds of friends, family, co-workers and elected officials attended the ceremony and spoke lovingly of the former police officer.
Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, Senator Chuck Schumer, Council Speaker Christine Quinn, Assemblymembers Cathy Nolan and Grace Meng, State Senator Joe Addabbo and Councilmembers Elizabeth Crowley, Daniel Dromm and Jimmy Van Bramer attended the renaming.
