Honoring the 17 West African people who perished in the horrendous 2022 fire allegedly caused by a space heater and exacerbated by failed self-closing doors, this week, the community held a ceremony to rename the Twin Park North West Street as 17 Abdoulie Touray Way.

Touray was not involved in the fire, but he was one of the first Gambians to come to the building. Present were members of the Osvaldo Feliz and Touray families; community activists; and elected officials, including Bronx Borough President Vanessa Gibson, Public Advocate Jumaanne Williams and Bronx D.A. Darcell Clark.
