Remembering & Honoring Meg Charlop at Street Renaming This Morning

10 May

Megan Charlop, the Bronx advocate, activist, cyclist, friend and so much else who died in a tragic bike accident two years ago, is being remembered this morning at 10:30 at 167th Street and Fulton Avenue, which will be renamed in her honor.

The above is a photo of Megan and her eldest daughter, Sarah, in 1979 at what was then called the Roots Garden, now Estella Diggs Park, the site of the renaming.

I’m biking down there in a little while. Hope to see you.
