Streets to Be Renamed for NYPD Officers Killed in Brooklyn Ambush

December 31, 2014  | 

New York City plans to honor the two police officers murdered by a gunman as they sat in their squad car in Brooklyn earlier this month by naming streets near their homes for them, reports WNBC-TV.

Mayor de Blasio and Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito announced the plan Wednesday. The council is expected to take up the proposal next month.

The new "Detective Rafael Ramos Way" and "Detective Wenjian Liu Way" would be on the Brooklyn blocks where the officers lived. Liu lived on West Sixth Street, and Ramos on Ridgewood Avenue.

The officers were posthumously promoted to the rank of detective.

"Our fallen heroes will never be forgotten. Their memory lives on in their families, and in the NYPD family. And now it will live on in the streets of the communities these brave men lived in and protected," de Blasio said in a statement. "This is an expression of our pride in each of these men, and our sadness at their loss."
