The Town of Huntington renamed Highland Court Saturday in honor of a restaurant owner who assisted first-responders during the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center.
Lloyd Frazier, who was 53 when he died of 9/11-related respiratory illness on Jan. 17, 2006, ran a McDonald’s restaurant a few blocks from Ground Zero.
He became a hero when he crawled outside to pull a police officer and firefighter into his store during the attacks and their aftermath.
“Hotel McDonald’s,” as his store became known, was soon recognized as a haven. He also set up a McDonald’s mobile unit that provided more than 700,000 free meals to firefighters, police officers and rescue workers.
He was also active in supporting the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island, which honors his memory every year with the Lloyd Frazier Memorial Golf & Tennis Outing.
