The first bill before me today, Introductory Number 739, sponsored by Council Members Povman, Abel and Koslowitz, would add the name "Christopher Postiglione Triangle" to the triangle bounded by the Horace Harding Expressway, 174th Street and 64th Avenue, in Queens.
Christopher Postiglione was born on September 1, 1968. He attended Public School 64 and went on to graduate from Franklin K. Lane High School in 1986.
In 1990, Christopher joined the City's Department of Environmental Protection as a construction worker. Tragically, on January 11, 1999, Christopher was struck by a car operated by a hit-and-run driver while carrying out his duties for the Department. He died on January 21, 1999.
Christopher gave nine years of dedicated service to the people of this City. Thus it is fitting that we honor Christopher by naming the site of his tragic accident in his memory. Therefore, the triangle bounded by Horace Harding Expressway, 174th Street and 64th Avenue, in Queens will be known as "Christopher Postiglione Triangle."
For the reasons previously stated, I will now sign the bill.
