Streets and intersections honoring New Yorkers and their achievements can be found on hundreds of street signs throughout the five boroughs. These are officially called called co-named streets, but are frequently referred to as secondary or honorific street names. The co-name can be found immediately above or below the primary street-name sign. These designations can apply to a portion of a street, to an intersection, or to a corner.

About Co-Named Streets[edit]

Co-Named Streets, also known as honorary or secondary street names, can be found on hundreds of street signs throughout the five boroughs. Often they are immediately above or below the primary street-name sign. These designations can apply to a portion of a street, an intersection, or a corner. Under Local Law 28 of 1992, honorary street names do not require an alteration to the City Map, which can be a costly legal and bureaucratic procedure. But such names are official. Each name must be authorized in a bill that must be enacted by the City Council and signed by the Mayor. Each approved bill then becomes a "Local Law" (L.L.), which is referenced by year and by a sequential L.L. number within that year. If you have a suggestion for co-naming, contact a city council member.
