Remarks by Mayor Bloomberg at a Public Hearing on Local Law

“The next bill before me is Introductory Number 343-A, sponsored by Council Members Addabbo, Jr., Avella, Brewer, Felder, Fidler, Gallagher, Gioia, Jackson, Katz, Koppell, Lanza, Lopez, McMahon, Oddo and Perkins.  This bill renames twenty-four thoroughfares and public places throughout the City after firefighters and civilians who perished on September 11, 2001.
