New York, Jul 2 (EFE).- New York City is honoring Puerto Rican painter Rafael Tufiño, legendary guitarist Yomo Toro and the Army's 65th Infantry Regiment, among others, by naming streets in Manhattan and the Bronx after them.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg signed the orders authorizing changes to the names of 50 streets, including one named for Sgt. Jose Enrique Ulloa, a Dominican who died in Iraq in 2008.
Tufiño (1922-2008), known as "the painter of the people," was a member of the "Generacion de los Cincuentas" (The Generation of the Fifties), a group of Puerto Rican artists.
