Bronx Street Co-Named in Honor of Marvel Comics' Stan Lee

Bronx Street Co-Named in Honor of Marvel Comics’ Stan Lee. Disney Legend Stan Lee based most of his comics on characters that called New York City their home. Most famously your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, who is arguably Lee’s most iconic character from his decades of work in comics.

In honor of his legacy and the love he held for New York City, a motion was put forward to name a street, located in The Bronx, after the comic book legend. Much to Marvel Fans’ delight, the proposal passed and the street was ceremoniously co-named this week.

The specific location is not far from home for Stan Lee. Lee lived at 1720 University Place for many years. He also went to school in the Bronx at DeWitt Clinton High School. Stan Lee passed away on November 12, 2018 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after suffering from cardiac arrest caused by respiratory and congestive heart failure.

University Avenue between Brandt Place and West 176th Street has been co-named “Stan Lee Way” under the bill passed by lawmakers codifying the moniker. Marvel fans are also petitioning for a statue of Stan Lee to be erected in New York City to honor the late comic book legend. The petition on currently has 134,000+ signatures and is looking to garnish 150,000 to convince the City to approve this motion.
