Brooklyn - NYC Dedicates Intersection To Slain 'Ger Tzedek' Liquor Store Clerk

Brooklyn, NY - The city plans to honor the memory of a 34 year-old Jamaican-born Orthodox Jewish liquor store clerk who was shot to death in 2010 in Midwood while defending his girlfriend from a would-be robber.

The NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Reports that a dedication re-naming the intersection of Avenue J and Nostrand Ave. in Midwood “Yoseph Robinson Avenue” will be permanently affixed in honor of the fallen clerk from MB VIneyards.

In August of 2010, Yoseph Robinson was fatally shot in the chest while attempting to grab the gun of a masked thug who had demanded his girlfriend, Lahavah Wallace, hand over her jewelry.

Lavanah Wallace, who collaborated with Councilman Jumaame Williams (D-Midwood) on the dedication, said she “hopes” the sign will encourage people who didn’t know Yoseph to stop and “ask who he was.”
