Bronx crossing guard prepares to leave post of 30 yearsPosted: Updated:
The Bronx has seen its fair share of change over the last 30 years, but one smiling face has remained constant at a street corner by Pelham Parkway.
The corner of Holland and Lydig avenues is known by residents as “Mother Teresa Way.” For the last 30 years, the kids crossing the street have had a Mother Teresa, of sorts, in Guni Mamudoski, who has kept them safe as they head to school.
She has been a crossing guard at that corner since her start in 1989, when she had young kids of her own and was seeking a way to make money.
She says the people she crosses have become her family. She plans on retiring in the coming weeks.
“I'm going to miss it a lot,” Mamudoski says. “This is my home."
