New York City Names Street After Pot Smoking Icon




Hahaha... Just kidding... kinda. The one and only Bob F-ing Marley had a street named after him in Brooklyn over the weekend. An eight-block stretch of Church Avenue between Remsen Ave and East 98th street in East Flatbush will henceforth forever be known as Bob Marley Boulevard.

The mayor approved the name change back in May, but the ceremony took place on Saturday and brought out Marley family members, politicians, foreign dignitaries and fans alike. Community Board 17 Chairman Micheal Russell, who helped spearhead the street naming initiative, calls the dedication "historically significant."

"We give thanks to the people of Brooklyn, the people of New York, the people of America in general, you know; looking forward for this day, long time," Marley's son Rohan Marley told New York 1.
