Our Bronx Hero Newbold Avenue Renaming

Join the East Bronx History Forum and American Legion Post 1065 for a co-naming of Newbold Avenue between Castle Hill and Havemeyer for WWII Army pilot, 2nd Lt. John N. Sekul. This Newbold Avenue resident was shot down and crash-landed behind enemy lines; he was captured, became a POW, and then executed.

The procession begins at 11:30am, and the ceremony begins at 12pm, where the location will be named 2nd Lt. John N. Sekul Place.
