Olde Towne of Flushing Burial Ground celebrated with street co-naming

Queens Council Member Sandra Ung joined community leaders, elected officials and the Olde Towne of Flushing Burial Ground Conservancy on Saturday, Oct. 28, for the renaming of the intersection of 164th Street and 46th Avenue in Flushing, which is now known as “Olde Towne Burial Ground Lane.”

“Olde Towne Burial Ground Lane will forever stand as a testament to our commitment to acknowledging the past and ensuring that the memory of those who rest here is never forgotten,” said Ung. “This is more than just a change in signage, it is a powerful declaration of our city’s values and will hopefully help future generations understand the importance of recognizing and rectifying injustices. We aren’t just renaming a street, we are rewriting a narrative.”
