"Tom Kane Way" Street Re-Naming

At 11 AM on May 31, Council Member Vinnie Gentile, joined by other elected officials, family and friends, will re-name the corner of 88th Street and Colonial Road in Bay Ridge "Tom Kane Way", in honor of the beloved local Renaissance Man.

Thomas Gregory Kane (1958-2011), a lifelong resident and influential local leader, devoted his life to Bay Ridge, founding BrooklynOne Theater Company, a haven for emerging artists, and working tirelessly with local youth.

Under the pen name "Citizen Kane," he wrote a popular column for the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, and generously gave his time and resources to numerous local charities, including the Francesco Loccisano Memorial Foundation.
