Back in July Anthony “Antmoe” Cippola past away from a motorcycle crash. Friends and family put together a respectful plaque to place near the crash site. The plaque is located on the corner of Gerritsen and Whitney Avenue in the yard of the Law Office.
Recently it was brought to our attention that someone has taken issue with the memorial and requesting its removal. I am not able to confirm who or why but I know that the person wants it gone.
This is one of three memorials on Gerritsen Avenue all stemming from fatal crashes. The other two memorials happen to be on public/city property and could technically be removed at any time. The Frank Solivan memorial is 36 square feet and draws a large crowd every so often. They also seem to dress up the area with skeletons which makes no sense.
Anthony’s memorial is small and respectful and it does not deserve to be removed. There really is no other place to put it.
