NYC Honorary Street Names


Joseph DeNicola Lane (Staten Island)
Present name:None
Location:At the intersection of Nedra Lane and Arden Avenue
Honoree:  Joseph DeNicola (2007-2014) had severe allergies to several foods as well as severe asthma. He required a Health Para at school and often used a Nebulizer during attacks. On Halloween night in 2014, he had a severe allergic reaction to something and went into anaphylactic shock which led to cardiac arrest. He died four days later. Joseph?s father decided to donate Joseph?s organs which benefited four other people and also donated Joseph?s tissue to improve the lives of as many as fifty people. One week before his death, Governor Cuomo signed a measure expanding access to EpiPens which schools will now keep on hand and will authorize teachers trained in their use to administer them to students even if the student doesn?t have a prescription.
