NYC Honorary Street Names
John Crispino Way (Staten Island)
Location:Northwest corner of Tompkins Avenue and St. Mary's Avenue
Honoree: John Crispino (1941-1984) led a group of neighbors in founding “Rosebank Youth and Parents” and served as its first president. When a teenager was in trouble John would get them into counseling or get them a job. When a friend was concerned over the possibility of his son losing his vision, John did research and provided the parents with the name of a doctor who specialized in the child’s problem. The child’s vision was saved. Even in death John Crispino continued to help people as an organ donor.
