Now there is a Ganesh Temple Street in New York

This is a historic day.. Now the children of this community would be able to walk up the block and feel a sense of belonging,” said Queens Borough President Donovan Richards

A street in New York has been renamed as Ganesh Temple Street, after the Ganesha Temple, the first Hindu temple built in the Tri State region of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

Attended by India’s Consul General Randhir Jaiswal, New York officials, eminent community members and scores of Indian Americans, the renaming ceremony was conducted amidst chanting of Vedic mantras and sound of cymbals-manjire, drums and conch shells.
