Danza honored at New York Statehouse


Tony Danza honored by N.Y. Legislature

ALBANY, N.Y. — Actor Tony Danza says he’s proud of his Italian heritage but says that, as Americans, “we’re all in this together.”

The Brooklyn native was honored Monday at the New York Legislature’s Italian-American Day.

Danza says he’s humbled by the recognition. He says it makes him recall the words of his father, a New York City sanitation worker and World War II veteran who often stressed the importance of the phrase E Pluribus Unum, or, out of many, one.

Danza, 63, starred in “Taxi” and “Who’s the Boss.”
