NYC Honorary Street Names

Stickball

Stickball Hall of Fame Place (Manhattan)
Present name:East 109th Street
Location:between 2nd Avenue and 3rd Avenue
Honoree: Of all the games that rose from the streets of urban America, none carried more mystique than Stickball. The 111th street Oldtimers, organized in 1968, used Stickball to reach out to young and old alike, to stay involved and make their neighborhoods a better place to live. In 2001, they and other Stickball aficionados created the Stickball Hall of Fame, located at the Museum of the City of New York.
