Gov. Andrew Cuomo urged in a letter to the acting secretary of the Army to renamed two streets in Brooklyn that bare the names of Confederate-era generals.

The streets — named for Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee — are located on Fort Hamilton Army Base.

Requests earlier this month from lawmakers and community leaders to change the names of the streets was denied.

“Given the events of this week, including the violence and terrorism perpetrated by white supremacists in Charlottesville and the resulting emboldening of the voices of Nazis and white supremacists, I now strongly urge the U.S. Army to reconsider its decision and I call on them to rename these streets,” Cuomo wrote to Acting Secretary Ryan McCarthy.

“The events of Charlottesville and the tactics of white supremacists are a poison in our national discourse, and every effort must be made to combat them.”
