New Yorkers came together at a street corner once again to remember and honor a fallen member of the NYPD.  

People gathered at 204th Street and Sherman Avenue, which was rechristened NYPD Detective Jason “Ta Ta” Rivera Way.

Rivera, and his partner, Wilbert Mora, were killed early last year while answering a 911 call in Harlem.

Police Commissioner Eddie Caban, Mayor Eric Adams, Rivera’s widow Dominique, and others were there for the occasion.

The intersection is where Rivera’s father dropped him off for school as a child and where he hung out with friends.
