As new waves of immigrants continue to come into New York City, and as gentrification brought on in part by rising rent costs, Louis Then, 50, said the renamed stretch of Broadway will leave a lasting legacy.
For Fedeas Berroja, walking up Juan Rodriguez Way aided by a cane, Wednesday marked a culmination of her own journey, which began when she arrived to New York City some 43 years ago.
