Present name:None
Location:At the intersection of East 5th Street and Greenwood Avenue
Honoree: Raymond Francis Goffio (1958-2018) played shortstop for New Utrecht High School and went on to Francis Marion University in South Carolina. Unfortunately, his baseball prospectswere cut short when he was struck by a car in an accident. He was an entrepreneur and volunteer for his city and community. After the 9/11 attacks, he aided first responders by bringing them food during the first search and rescue attempts, and help in the clean-up efforts that followed. The NYFD named him an Honorary Battalion Chief for his service, including his work to erect the Brooklyn Wall of remembrance at MCU Park. Goffio also started the 8-team Brooklyn Eggcream Co-Ed Softball League, which still exists today. (Lander)
