NYC Honorary Street Names


Dennis M. Hogan Way (Staten Island)
Present name:None
Location:At the southwest corner of Forest Avenue and City Boulevard
Honoree: Dennis M. Hogan (1961-2016) was born in Brooklyn and grew up in New Dorp. He attended Our Lady Queen of Peace School and Monsignor Farrell High School before relocating to the North Shore. He had a long career in telecommunications and worked for Verizon, Time Warner and, most recently, Charter Communications. He was an active member of the Manresa Council of the Knights of Columbus and leaves behind a legacy of charity work. He ran fundraisers to offset medical costs for terminally ill children. He would host service personnel from the ships docked at the Stapleton Homeport as part of the Adopt-A-Sailor Program. He also volunteered for over two years to help restore communications for Verizon at the World Trade Center site after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, which many believe contributed to his passing at an early age.
