Avella, Weprin, Civic Unveil Renamed Briarwood Station

State Senator Tony Avella, Assemblyman David Weprin, and Briarwood Community Association President Seymour “Sy” Schwartz unveiled the fully renamed, and much anticipated, subway station to the Briarwood residents and commuters at a press conference on April 17. In 2014, in an effort to reflect the interests of the Briarwood community’s residents and to preserve the identity of the station’s geographic location for subway riders, Senator Avella and Assemblyman Weprin both proposed legislation (S6816/A789) that would effectively rename the station from what was known as “Briarwood – Van Wyck Boulevard,” according to a statement released by Weprin and Avella.
