Station cleaner who helped people escape after Times Square bombing is nominated to be a Hometown Hero

It was a selfless act by a station cleaner unsure of what might happen next, and it earned Monroe gratitude and admiration. It also brought him a nomination to be a Daily News Hometown Hero. Each year, the newspaper honors people whose above-and-beyond efforts make save or improve the lives of others. The awards are open this year to people who work in the transit, education, public service and medical fields, as well as to youth.
