Street renaming for Court Officer Theodore Leoutsakos, who died of site-related illness

City Council approved a number of new street renamings last Thursday. One of them is for a member of the September 11th community, reports Christopher Barca in the Queens Chronicle.

The corner of 29th Street and 21st Avenue will be named for Court Officer Theodore Leoutsakos who died of World Trade Center-related pancreatic cancer years after responding to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

On the day of the attacks, Leoutsakos commandeered a van and hurried to the World Trade Center. He was assisting people near the North Tower when the South Tower collapsed.
