Rockaway has kept its promise to never forget Lisa King-Johnson.

Peninsula officials last Thursday unveiled a brand-new street sign at the intersection of the Boardwalk and 124th Street after the original one, dedicated in her memory in 2004, was destroyed during Superstorm Sandy. King-Johnson died during the Sept. 11 attacks. She worked as the vice president of research for investment banking firm Keefe Bruyette & Woods, which was on the 89th floor of the World Trade Center’s Tower Two.

State Sen. Joe Addabbo Jr. (D-Howard Beach), who secured the original sign during his days in the City Council, stood with civic activist Danny Ruscillo, who helped obtain the replacement, and Kristie King-Johnson, Lisa’s daughter, during a brief ceremony before the new sign was unveiled.
