zwerenz2

When you walk by the corner of 82nd Avenue and Myrtle Avenue, be sure to look up at the street sign.

You’ll notice that you’re walking on Jack Zwerenz Way.

Zwerenz was a longtime civic volunteer in Glendale. He was a prominent member of the Glendale Property Owners Association, where he fought against electrifying the Montauk branch of the LIRR that runs through Glendale.

He was also a co-founder GCOP, which today is one of the largest civilian patrols in the city.

Over the weekend, both groups joined Councilman Bob Holden to unveil the street sign in¬†Zwerenz’s honor.

The next time you walk by, be sure to remember all the good Zwerenz contributed to the community.
