Plans are currently underway to have a new Trinidad and Tobago Street sign, after thieves stole the original sign, which was placed just over a month ago at 131st Street in New York.
On August 20th, 131st Street at Queens, New York City, was co-named in honour of T&T, as many nationals live there.
Consulate General of TT in New York, Andre Laveau, says the sign was stolen either late on Saturday night or early Sunday morning. He said plans are under way to have it replaced as soon as possible.
Foreign Affairs Minister Amery Browne says he has instructed the Consulate General “to meet with the Mayor of New York asap on the matter and to request a formal investigation.”
In August 2022, the Little Guyana Street sign was also stolen.
