Stan “The Man” Lee was consistently the first to tell a crowd of people exactly what number of keys to various urban communities he had. He was glad to clarify the various Stan Lee Day occasions that were marked into state and city laws throughout the years. (He likewise wanted to self-deprecatingly joke that the schools and post workplaces were some way or another still open on said festivities!) Well, we can add one increasingly municipal respect to the not insignificant rundown, in light of the fact that the New York City Council decided on Tuesday July 23rd, 2019 to affirm a suggestion that would name a Bronx road after the comicbook concocter and appearance ruler!
College Avenue between Brandt Place and West 176th Street will be co-named Stan Lee Way in celebration of Stan Lee’s life and accomplishments. Stan inhabited 1720 University Avenue as a young fellow and went to DeWitt Clinton High School in the Bronx.
Stan would later go on to co-make such famous and cherished American characters of well known fiction, for example, Spider-Man, The Fantastic Four, Dr. Unusual, and Daredevil, every one of whom consider New York City their home. Stan was so roused by his home express that he even took his well known comicbook catchphrase, “Excelsior!”, from the New York State adage!
All that is left is for the Mayor to sign the proposition into law. What are you sitting tight for, de Blasio? How about we make this road sign authority! EXCELSIOR!
Fun Fact: Stan has a road named after him at Universal’s Islands of Adventure in Orlando on Marvel Superhero Island called Stan Lee Blvd.!
We can hardly wait to walk down Stan Lee Way, ideally soon!
