NYC Honorary Street Names


Briana Ojeda Way (Brooklyn)
Present name:Bergen Street
Location:Between Hoyt Street and Bond Street
Honoree: Briana Ojeda was an 11-year-old girl from Brooklyn who died tragically in 2010 after suffering an asthma attack. As Briana's mother was rushing her to the hospital, she was stopped by a police officer, who failed to administer life-saving CPR, claiming he was not able to perform it. As a result of her death, her family has fought, lobbied for Briana’s Law, which would require police officers in New York State to be retrained on cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) every two years.
