Street in NewYork named after Elie Wiesel Print E-mail

New York City has named a street after Nobel Peace Prize laureate Elie Wiesel.

During a ceremony last month, the southwest corner of 84th Street and Central Park West on the Upper West Side of Manhattan was renamed Elie Wiesel Way.

Wiesel was “perhaps the most eloquent voice for peace in our world”, said New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio in remarks delivered at the ceremony by Deputy Mayor Richard Buery. “New York City is proud to honour his memory.” Wiesel, a Holocaust survivor and author, died at his home in Manhattan last July at the age of 87.
