The RAMONES Will Have A Street Named After Them In New York
The iconic punk quartet will be honoured with the special naming of a Queens street.
The New York City borough of Queens is to honour the Ramones by naming a street after the band.
The Ramones, who formed in Forest Hills, Queens in 1974, are having their seismic influence recognised in this special way after New York City Council Member Karen Koslowitz proposed that the street be named after the band earlier this year.
The street is at the intersection of 67th Avenue and 110th Street in Queens, and is set to be renamed 'Ramones Way' after a grand unveiling of the name change on October 23. As reported by Pitchfork, the street is right in front of the main entrance of Forest Hills High School, where founding members Johnny, Joey, Dee Dee, and Tommy Ramone all attended.
