NYC Honorary Street Names


Allison Hope Liao Way (Queens)
Present name:None
Location:At the northeast corner of Main Street and Cherry Avenue
Honoree: Allison Hope Liao was only three years-old in 2013 when she was hit and killed by a driver while crossing the street with her grandmother despite having the right of way. Since her death, the Liao family has helped to form “Families for Safe Streets”, an advocacy group comprised of families who have lost love ones or experienced serious injuries as a result of traffic violence. Her family’s efforts have been instrumental in lowering of the New York City default speed limit, passing of several traffic safety bills, and fighting for more safety cameras. Allison’s death was also among the catalysts for Vision Zero, a set of initiatives and outreach plans aimed at ending traffic deaths and injuries on New York City streets. (Koo)
