From the Forum West:
Streets in Richmond Hill and Glendale have been renamed after two notable members of the neighborhoods, announced City Councilmember Elizabeth Crowley.
The Union Turnpike mall between Woodhaven Boulevard and Myrtle Avenue in Glendale will be named the Frederick D. Haller Way, and 109th Street between 86th Street and Jamaica Avenue will be known as Nancy Cataldi Way. The ceremonial names were approved on June 30, when the City Council passed legislation to rename streets throughout the five boroughs.
And from the Times Ledger:
The City Council approved a bill June 30 to rename the corner of 205th Street and Hollis Avenue “Run DMC JMJ Way” in honor of the hip-hop group that pioneered the genre. The corner is near the location of Hollis Famous Burger, a restaurant and museum dedicated to the history of hip-hop and filled with memorabilia from the band.
