Rename Sunnyside St. for Former Sen.

The daughters of former State Sen. Carlo A. Lanzillotti joined City Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer and community activists for a July 21 ceremony to rename the corner of 41st Street and 48th Avenue in Sunnyside in the late lawmaker’s memory. As noted, Lanzillotti, who formerly resided in Sunnyside, served in the Armed Forces during the Korean War and represented the Seventh State Senate District during the 1950s. Among the distinguished guests on hand for the renaming were Don McCallian, president of the United Forties Civic Association, and Community Board 2 Chairperson Joseph Conley.
