"Karen Barone Way" Street Renaming

On Wednesday, June 12 at 3:30 PM, City Council Member Vinnie Gentile will host a street renaming ceremony at the corner of 82nd Street and 15th Avenue in Dyker Heights in honor of dedicated community activist Karen Barone.

The street in front of P.S. 204 (the Vince Lombardi School) will now be known as “Karen Barone Way.”

Karen Barone gave a lifetime of service to her community, including raising awareness and funds for pancreatic cancer research.

As a PTA co-president and member of the Community Education Council’s president’s council, she dedicated countless hours to P.S. 204.

Everyone who knew Karen is invited to join in celebrating her memory with her family and friends, elected officials, community leaders, and the school community.

RSVP to Sara Steinweiss at (718) 748-5200 extension 205.
