NYC Honorary Street Names


Dashane Santana Way (Manhattan)
Present name:None
Location:North side of the intersection of Clinton Street and Delancey Street
Honoree: Dashane Santana was 12 years old when she was killed while crossing Delancey Street at Clinton Street near the entrance to the Williamsburg Bridge. Her death, in January 2012, brought attention to pedestrian hazards at this intersection. As a result, the Department of Transportation installed countdown clocks on crossings, increased pedestrian crossing time at four intersections and announced plans to widen sidewalks and create new traffic patterns along the most hazardous stretches of Delancey Street.
