For the 11th consecutive year, Straus Media-Manhattan (publisher of Our Town, The Spirit, The Chelsea News and Our Town Downtown) joined forces with 32 BJ SEIU to recognize the accomplishments of 21 building service workers. Manny Teixeira, a doorman of 55 years, and Loretta Zuk, one of the few female supers in New York City, were among those receiving awards. Friends, family members and employers attended the award ceremony, hosted by NY1’s Juan Manuel Benitez, in support of the honorees.

Local elected officials including State Senator Brian Benjamin, State Senator Brad Hoylman, State Senator Liz Krueger, Public Advocate Letitia James, Borough President Gale Brewer, Council Member Margaret Chin and Council Member Ben Kallos, stopped by to congratulate the honorees and present their awards.
