Family and friends of a fallen police officer gathered on Saturday, August 2 at the corner of Ely and Adee avenues to co-name the intersection as “Sergeant Keith A. Ferguson Way.” Ferguson died after suffering a heart attack on January 1, 2004. He was running to assist an officer who was chasing a suspect. At the time, he was on patrol in lower Manhattan as part of the NYPD’s anti-terrorism unit when he heard a foot patrol officer calling for assistance. He was a 17-year veteran of the New York Police Department. Family members were joined by Councilman Andy King during the unveiling of the street sign.
