Chappaqua Bridge to be Named for Fallen Veteran

CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. - The recently-completed Route 120 bridge may soon be renamed the Staff Sergeant Kyu Hyuk Chay Memorial Bridge to honor the Chappaqua military veteran who was killed in Afghanistan in 2006.

According to Assembly member Robert Castelli (R, C - Goldens Bridge), the legislation to rename the bridge for Chay was unanimously passed in the Assembly and in the state Senate. The bill will now head to Gov. Andrew Cuomo for signature.

Chay was born in South Korea and grew up in Chappaqua, where his family opened a local cleaning business near the Chappaqua train station. Chay was three credits shy of graduation with a law degree from Brooklyn Law School when  he was killed.

The Route 120 bridge overlooks the family business, New Castle Cleaners, as well as the war memorial at the Chappaqua train station, where there is a plaque dedicated in his honor.
