Elmhurst Hospital worker who died from COVID-19 celebrated with street co-naming near LeFrak City


A beloved 25-year Elmhurst Hospital veteran, union worker and Corona community leader who died from COVID-19 at the height of the pandemic, was honored Saturday, June 12, with a street co-naming ceremony near LeFrak City.

The northeast corner of 98th Place and 57th Avenue was renamed Priscilla Carrow Way as her daughter and son gathered with dozens of her neighbors and friends.

“Priscilla Carrow Way will be a symbol in our neighborhood memorializing a woman that impacted lives in more ways than one,” Councilman Francisco Moya said. “Priscilla was an advocate, a champion and a crusader, fighting for housing, fair wages and so much more for so many.”
