Old Country Road in Plainview renamed 'Heroes Way' in honor of COVID-19 first responders
A portion of Old Country Road in Plainview was renamed "Heroes Way" today.
The renaming of the street pays tribute to first responders and hospital staff of Long Island.
The stretch runs in front of Plainview Hospital.
Officials say those Long Islanders empowered the region to emerge from the darkest days of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Also honored at the ceremony were the nearly 2,200 Nassau residents killed by the coronavirus.
