The life and accomplishments of Nobel Prize winner and Far Rockaway native Richard Feynman was celebrated on May 11 when a stamp and street were dedicated in his honor.

The stamp unveiling took place at the Far Rockaway Post Office and was followed by renaming Cornaga Avenue (at Mott and Cornaga) Feynman Way. Among those attending the ceremonies were local representatives, USPS officials including Postmaster George Buonocore and Scott Klein (Customer Relations) and various members of the Feynman family.
