NORWALK - A street in New York City now bears the name of one of the 6-year-old victims of the Newtown School shooting.

Benjamin Wheeler's family unveiled the new sign Saturday afternoon.

Benjamin's parents say they used to live in that neighborhood when he was a baby, and frequently visited there once they moved to Newtown.
