NYC has a short memory

Following a declaration at the end of last year by New York City’s council to co-name 164 streets with notable figures from the city’s past, the street on which Notorious B.I.G’s childhood home sits will now bear his name — Christopher Wallace Way. Likewise, the intersection of Vanderbilt Avenue and Targee Street in Staten Island, where the Wu-Tang Clan shot some of their videos, will mark the location of a district named after them.

For fans of hip-hop, New York’s street corners and intersections are already a sort of living museum memorialised in lyrics memorised by diehard fans.
