Special Street Co-Naming Ceremony For State Senator Jose R. Peralta Way

10-06-2019 11:00 AM - 10-06-2019 1:00 PM

The northeast corner of 79th Street and 37th Avenue, the street where Peralta lived with his wife and children, may bear his name after a street co-naming proposal was introduced by Council Member Daniel Dromm and unanimously passed Community Board 3.

Peralta, who died on Nov. 21 from what was later determined to be complications from a rare form of leukemia, served the 13th District in Albany from 2010 to 2018, and the 39th District as Assembly member from 2002 to 2009. 

Peralta’s widow and two children, Matthew, and Myles, still live on the proposed corridor that may be named in his honor.
