Young boy fatally shot by cop 50 years ago honored at South Jamaica intersection


Rarely does a street co-naming ceremony provide a cathartic moment for some of the city’s most potent leaders, but that is precisely what occurred in Southeast Queens on Friday.

Mayor Eric Adams and City Council Speaker Adrienne Adams delivered remarks at Calvary Baptist Church in South Jamaica before political leaders, clergy, criminal justice reformers, and members of Clifford Glover’s family as they unveiled a new street sign at the intersection of Guy R. Brewer Boulevard and 112th Road where, a half-century earlier, a 10-year-old Black boy was shot and killed by a white NYPD undercover officer.
