After it was stolen almost a week ago, the Trinidad and Tobago Street sign in Queens, New York City has been replaced.
On August 20th, 131st Avenue was co-named in honour of TT as many nationals live there. But a week later it was stolen.
Minister of Foreign and Caricom Affairs Dr Amery Browne confirmed that the T&T sign was replaced via a post on his social media page.
Browne posted a photo of the new sign that was erected at 131st in Richmond Hill, Queens, New York, on his Twitter page and wrote: “The Trinidad and Tobago Street in Queens, New York now has signage once again! Thanks to the Mayor’s Office and other authorities, including our Consulate General.”
A photo of the sign’s current replacement process was taken by the New York City Council and thanks went out to them for “re-installing the Trinidad and Tobago Street sign!”
Investigations are still under way to determine what happened to the original sign.
