This street in New York is getting named after Stan Lee
Last month, the Notorious B.I.G. had a Brooklyn street named after him, Stan Lee is getting one too, this time in New York City.
The legendary Stan Lee needs no introduction. Lee was a comic book writer, a writer for Marvel Comics of course. Rising the ranks of the business, he and artist Jack Kirby essentially made the Marvel you love today.
Lee was personally responsible for creating Spider-Man, X-Men, the Hulk and Thor. This is the man that created the foundation for the later MCU monopoly.
In later years, Lee was more known for his endearing and comedic cameos in all the MCU films (and Marvel films before Iron Man in fact), standing as a little nod to the super fans out there.
Lee died in November last year at the age of 95 years old. Numerous Marvel films after this time were made in tribute to him.
The tributes however are still going as the New York City Council has voted to rename a Bronx street after the comic book legend.
According to reports, University Avenue between Brandt Place and West 176th Street will be co-named “Stan Lee Way,” and the proposal is only a mayoral sign away from becoming official.
The street itself was where Lee and his family lived in an apartment during his teen years. He was also a former student at the nearby DeWitt Clinton High School.
Here’s to hoping that mayoral sign goes down.
