New Rochelle street renamed in honor of former resident who is now 102 years old
A special tribute to a former longtime New Rochelle resident was held Thursday.
A section of Bayberry Lane is now named for 102-year-old Benjamin Ferencz, who is the oldest Nuremberg prosecutor.
The Nuremberg trials were held at the end of World War II to prosecute high-ranking Nazi officials for their crimes.
Ferencz watched the festivities remotely from his home in Florida.
The Bayberry Neighborhood Association, New Rochelle students and city officials joined in the event.
