State Sen. Frank Padavan (R-Bellerose), and state Sen. Toby Stavisky (D-Flushing) joined with borough historian Stanley Cogan, and Queens Historical Society and the Flushing Freedom Mile Committee members to pay tribute to the tourist attraction.
The Flushing Freedom Mile is a collection of many local historic places, such as the Lewis Latimer and Bowne houses, Town Hall, the Quaker meeting house and St. George
