Roxanne Reid, a cherished hero of the New York City Housing Authority who perished in the COVID-19 outbreak, will have a Bronx street renamed in her honor.
Reid was constantly working to improve the lives of her neighbors, whether it was by pushing for repairs for residents in her own NYCHA community or securing assistance for elderly residents. In the Castle Hill Houses for more than three decades, Reid was a cherished advocate for Bronx housing.
She will now always be remembered because of a roadway that bears her name that is located next to the NYCHA complex where she spent more than 40 years of her life. It will now be known as "Roxanne Reid Way" in her honor, thanks in part to Councilwoman Amanda Farias.
Reid Was Socially Active And Also Contributed To The Basketball Court Construction
Reid was a tenacious advocate for her neighborhood and was also known to have a good time. She contributed to the construction of a new basketball court in Castle Hill for the enjoyment of numerous families and kids.
Reid's son and daughter have carried on her legacy by carrying on her battle and supporting their neighborhood.
This Saturday at noon is the scheduled time for the street renaming event. The Bronx's 625 Castle Hill Avenue is the location. Reid was also a very active contributor to local news and reporters.
