1. Malcolm X Boulevard

New York City permanently recognizes Malcolm X through a pair of Malcolm X Boulevards, one in Harlem, co-representing northern Sixth Avenue with NY Public Library benefactor James Lenox, and one in Bedford Stuyvesant. The Malcolm X Grassroots Movement has been deeply involved with Eric Garner protests. After years of neglect (and possible demolition), the Audubon Ballroom, located on 165th and Broadway, was restored as a dual purpose building for Columbia Medical School and the Shabazz Educational Center.
