5. Miles Davis Way – Upper West Side
In December 2013, one of Mayor Bloomberg’s final acts as Mayor was to sign a bill renaming West 77th. Street between Riverside Drive and West End Ave. “Miles Davis Way.” The project to get the street renamed after the legendary Jazz musician took five years of meetings and support rallies led by Miles’ former friend and fellow musician Shirley Zafirau. The official unveiling should take place sometime this year.
