The public unveiling will be presented today at McGoldrick Library by Dennis M. Walcott, President and CEO of Queens Public Library with Natalie Milbrodt, Director of the Queens Memory Project and Jason D. Antos, Executive Director of the Queens Historical Society.
Mr. Walcott will unveil three posters highlighting major landmarks named after well-known individuals:
