Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano will re-dedicate Warburton Avenue in the City of Yonkers as Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard Tuesday, April 3 at 1PM, at the corner of Warburton Avenue and Main Street, to commemorate the anniversary of MLK’s assassination.
In January 1997, the Yonkers City Council passed a resolution to rename Warburton Avenue to ‘Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard,’ from Main Street, north to the Village of Hastings-on-Hudson border. At the time, only one sign was installed. Six signs now will be unveiled and line the length of Warburton Ave from Main Street to Hastings to designate the street as Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard.
April 4, 2018 marks 50 years since Martin Luther King Jr., the icon civil rights leader, was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee.
