The medical examiner has identified Moises Locon Yac as the second victim killed in last Thursday's explosion in the East Village.
It was assumed that one of the bodies found in the rubble was Locon's, but the medical examiner was not able to positively identify him until Wednesday.
Locon was working at the register at Sushi Park Restaurant when the explosion occurred.
According to officials, his body will be flown to Guatemala.
The other person killed in the blast was 23-year-old Nicholas Figueroa, a patron at the restaurant. His funeral is set for Monday in Manhattan.
Meanwhile, workers are still collecting rubble from the area, but there are some signs the neighborhood is getting back to normal.
A bus lane is open again, and some are being allowed back into their homes and businesses.
Others still have not been able to get into their apartments.
"Every day, they say you can get back in. Every day. we show up with escorts. Today they said, OK, maybe again, maybe again," said Stuart Lipsky, a displaced resident. "Luckily. all the tenants, we all bonded together, so we can Twitter everybody else if we hear anything."
Investigators are looking into whether illegally tapped gas lines in one of the buildings caused the explosion.
