Mayor Michael Bloomberg bestowed the title on Wesley Autrey as he presented him with the city's highest award for civic achievement, calling the 50-year-old construction worker "a great man a man who makes us all proud to be New Yorkers." Past recipients of the Bronze Medallion have included Gen. Douglas MacArthur, Martin Luther King Jr., Muhammad Ali and Willie Mays. Bloomberg said he thought about Autrey's actions as he waited for his downtown subway yesterday morning, looking at how much space was between the rails. "I don't know what I would have done," the mayor said at a jam-packed news conference. Autrey, who said people now recognize him on the street and called him a "superhero," downplayed the notion that he had done anything extraordinary. "The real heroes are the young men and women fighting in Iraq," Autrey, a Navy veteran who served in Vietnam, said at city hall. The last honoree was Housing Authority employee Felix Vasquez, who caught a baby thrown from a burning building in 2005. On Tuesday, Autrey saw Cameron Hollopeter, a 19-year-old film student, suffering a seizure while waiting for a train. After stumbling down the station platform, Hollopeter, of Littleton, Mass., fell onto the tracks Hawai'i forecast A small-craft advisory will continue into the weekend with breezy conditions because of a strong area of high pressure to the north and an area of low pressure to the southeast.

ELLIOT SANDER Metropolitan Transportation Authority executive director condition yesterday. Metropolitan Transportation Authority executive director Elliot Sander called Autrey's action "a death-defying act of bravery. We truly have not seen anything like this. ... He was at the right place at the right time and did the right thing." After the city hall ceremony, a limousine whisked Autrey who also received a year's worth of free subway rides to a meeting with Trump, who presented him with $10,000. He was given $2,500 by the New York Film Academy to start a scholarship fund for his children, and tickets to the Broadway musical "The Lion King"and a backstage tour. Autrey, who did the morning news show circuit yesterday and taped a David Letterman TV show appearance later in the day, will be flown to Los Angeles for an appearance next week on Ellen DeGeneres' talk show. As for his new celebrity, he concluded, "good things happen when you do good." In a statement released through a hospital spokesman, the Hollopeter family called Autrey "a blessing from the Almighty. He deserves all of the attention and the accolades that are now being bestowed upon him." Newsday contributed to this report. i mi 1 4tt&m&fizm&&3?3i I
