THE BRONX - Community leaders, family and friends gathered Tuesday afternoon at the intersections of Holland, Antin and Bronxdale avenues to rename it for longtime Pelham Parkway residents Ben and Dotty Abrams.

Ben Abrams was a member of the Hubert H. Humphrey Democratic Club and helped secure benches along the Pelham Parkway and at Bronx Park East. His wife, Dotty, was a member of the Ruth Kizon Group for Handicapped Children as well as a member of the Pelham Parkway Cancer Society. Together, they served the community for more than 60 years.
