Bayonne Remembers: Ludovico "Ludo" Nolfo Honored for Years of Service to Community

Most people called Ludovico "Ludo" Nolfo, except Mayor Jimmy Davis, who always called him “Mr. Nolfo.” “Even as mayor, I called him Mr. Nolfo,” Davis said. “I couldn’t.” Davis’ comments came during the March 22 dedication ceremony of a plaque and plaza to commemorate Nolfo.

The ceremony was appropriately held at the plaza that bears his name at Back Bay Gardens, a Bayonne Housing Authority building. Davis called Nolfo “a gentleman,” and recalled growing up near him on Trask Avenue, reflecting on the respect Nolfo had for everyone, even for kids.
