Honoree: This co-naming honors the Tibetan Community of New York and New Jersey, Inc. (TCNYNJ), established in 1979 and located at 32-01 57th Street in Woodside. The Tibetan Community of New York & New Jersey, Inc. is the center for the largest concentration of Tibetans in the Americas, around 12,000.
