Bayron-Nieves name will live on at the corner of 116th Street and Lexington Avenue, just steps away from where police say 30-year-old Winston Glynn murdered the woman.
Local leaders, friends, and family of Bayron-Nieves released balloons in her memory at a ceremony memorializing her on Sunday.
"I hope that what happened to my daughter won't happen to any other child," Bayron-Nieves' mother said. "I want them to always remember my baby."
Police say that Glynn entered the Burger King on January 9, 2022 and pistol-whipped the manager and one of two customers in the restaurant. He then demanded money.
Bayron-Nieves gave him $100 but he still shot her in the stomach before stealing the manager's phone and taking off.
Last March, Glynn pled not guilty to the murder.
