City Council approves rash of Brooklyn street co-namings, including for pols’ parents


The City Council approved nearly 200 street co-namings, including 23 in Brooklyn, at its stated meeting on Wednesday — and the vote was extra sweet for two Brooklyn pols who will get to see the honor bestowed upon their parents

In Flatbush, the intersection of East 45th Street and Farragut Road will be co-named for Marie Andrée Bichotte, the mother of State Assemblymember and Brooklyn Democratic Party chair Rodneyse Bichotte Hermelyn. Meanwhile, a few miles north in Bedford-Stuyvesant, the corner of Quincy Street and Malcolm X Boulevard will be imparted the name of Dr. Robert Cornegy Sr., the father of outgoing City Councilmember Robert Cornegy Jr.
