Jeanne and Jules Manford Post Office Building[edit]

The Jackson Heights Post Office building at 78-02 37th Avenue, will be known as the Jeanne and Jules Manford Post Office Building, in tribute to the couple whose openly gay son, Morty, was beaten while distributing fliers at a political gathering in New York City in April 1972. The attack galvanized his parents to take their own actions to counter hate and discrimination. Rep. Joe Crowley (D-Bronx, Queens), who introduced the legislation to rename the building, noted that it took just a year for “President Obama put pen to paper, making it a law.” [1]

Remarks were made by the Honorable Joseph Crowley, New York 14th Congressional District, U.S. Congress member from NY; the Honorable Daniel Dromm, NYC Council's 25th District, city council member; the Honorable Francisco Moya, NYS assembly's 39th District, assembly member to NYS Senate; the Honorable Michael DenDekker, NYS assembly's 34th District, assembly member to NYS Senate; Drew Taglia, Executive Director of PFLAG NYC; Bill Meehan, Executive Director of Queens Pride; Suzanne Manford Swan, daughter of Jeanne and Jules Manford, and her husband Mr. Swan. The master of ceremonies was Roxanne Hosein.
