It’s Now “Εθνικός Κήρυξ – National Herald Way”

ASTORIA, N.Y. — In a rare honor, New York City has renamed the street on which the National Herald sits, including in Greek.

Mayor Bill deBlasio signed the measure to rename 30th Street between 37th and 38th avenues to Εθνικός Κήρυξ – National Herald Way, marking more than 100 years since its founding and service to the Greek-American community and Diaspora.

The daily paper — called Ethnikos Kyrix in Greek — was founded in 1915, and moved its operations from Manhattan to Queens in 1982. It’s been at its current location at 37-10 30 St. in Astoria since 2005.

The National Herald, which also runs a nonprofit that assists the needy and supports education initiatives, was praised by elected officials as an invaluable resource to the area’s Greek-American population, DNAinfo noted in a feature.

“The National Herald has been a beacon of progressive press, assisting needy families in the community, and contributing to civic and cultural achievements that make Astoria one of the greatest neighborhoods in our City,” Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer, who sponsored the street re-naming bill, said in a statement.

While the paper is published daily in Greek, it has also offered a weekly English-language edition since 1997 under and it under the direction of Publisher-Editor Antonis H. Diamataris and has offices in Athens, Boston and Cyprus.
