New York City to Rename Streets After Notorious B.I.G., Wu-Tang Clan, Woody Guthrie!
First Name Tom, Last Name Foolery... And I'm Everybody's Uncle!
The New York City Council voted unanimously Friday to officially honor three of the five boroughs’ most revered artists – the Notorious B.I.G., theWu-Tang Clan and Woody Guthrie– with streets named in their honor.
The Brooklyn block where the Notorious B.I.G. grew up – located on St. James Place between Fulton Street and Gates Avenue – will be renamed Christopher Wallace Way after the rapper’s birth name, while Staten Island’s Vanderbilt Avenue and Targee Street will tentatively be called Wu-Tang Clan District, Gothamist reports.
In November, the Brooklyn Community Board 2 voted to approve the re-naming petition of Christopher Wallace Way, setting the stage for Friday’s vote.
