The Co-op City American Legion Post 1871 and Riverbay Corp. remembered our nation’s fallen heroes at the time honored Co-op City Memorial Day Ceremony on Sunday, May 27 at 2049 Bartow Avenue. The heartfelt event featured a spectacular performance by the Transit Authority Drums and Bagpipes, a raising of the colors and wreath laying ceremony honoring the many U.S. service members who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

Assemblyman Michael Benedetto made some brief remarks at the ceremony.
