Whitestone street to be co-named ‘Msgr. John C. Tosi Way’ in honor of late St. Luke’s pastor

A corner in Whitestone will soon bear the name of a local religious leader and lifelong Queens resident, who dedicated his life to the spiritual enrichment of the neighborhood.

On Friday, May 21, the community will celebrate the street co-naming of Clintonville Street and Locke Avenue as Msgr. John C. Tosi Way. In October 2020, Councilman Paul Vallone brought the co-naming proposal to the City Council in honor of Tosi, the pastor of St. Luke’s Roman Catholic Church from 2005 until his death in May 2020.
