NYC Honorary Street Names


Khay Cochran Place (Brooklyn)
Present name:None
Location:Southeast corner of the intersection of State Street and Bond Street
Honoree: In the summer of 2000, a catastrophic gas leak caused a row house at 420 State Street to explode, claiming the lives of the two residents, Leonard and Harriet Walit, and their next-door neighbor, Leon “Khay” Cochran. Khay was constantly doing favors for his neighbors – as he was doing while helping the Walits find the gas leak which caused the explosion. (See also Leonard and Harriet Walit Way)
