Staff Sergeant Rocco Moretto Way

Delighted to share some incredible news: 41st Street in Astoria, NY will officially be renamed SSgt Rocco Moretto Way.

As many of you know,  Rocco was a  longtime resident of Astoria (69 years!), so this a great honor for the late World War II and D-Day veteran and his family. The street co-naming bill containing Staff Sergeant Rocco Moretto Way, proposed by Council Member Costa Constantinides (District 22) passed in August. The Moretto Family extends their sincere gratitude and appreciation to CM Constantinides for making this great honor a reality.

The unveiling ceremony will take place this Friday, October 18, 2019 at 1 p.m. on the corner of 31st Avenue and 41st Street and is open to all. The program will be hosted by Council Member Costa Constantinides and son John Moretto will speak on behalf of the family. After all speakers, there will be a color guard and then the sign will be revealed. A replica will also be presented to the family. Immediately following the ceremony,  Rocco Moretto VFW Post 2348 will host a reception  until 4 pm. Please join us!
