His three sons did the honor of unveiling the street sign.

"My dad was a humble person, very unassuming," Rick Brooks said.

A longtime City Hall reporter, Brooks worked for nearly five decades at 1010 WINS and covered major stories such as the Attica Prison riot, the civil rights movements and the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center.

He died in December at age 86, just a couple of weeks after he stopped working.

In December, the radio room at City Hall was also renamed in honor of Brooks.
