A street corner in Queens now bears the name of one of the borough's former leaders.
In Corona, the corner of 103rd St. and Northern Boulevard has been officially conamed as Helen M. Marshall Boulevard.
Marshall, a born and raised New Yorker was the first African-American Queens Borough President serving from 2002 to 2013.
After a life long career in politics, advocating for education, Marshall died back in March.
Her family said the street corner is the perfect place to honor her memory.
"This is where my mother's official career began after becoming a civic leader and a girl scout leader, PTA president. This was one of her first real jobs here in this building," said Marshalls' daughter Agnes Marie Marshall.
Elected officials from across the borough and the state gathered for the ceremony.
