The Ramones Will Have a Queens Street Named For Them

The Ramones will be canonized once more with a street in their hometown of Queens.

New York City Council member Karen Koslowitz proposed the renaming of a street outside the main entrance of Forest Hills High School — 67th Avenue and 110th Street, where the original four band members attended — last Summer and the motion has finally been approved. The unveiling will come on October 23rd at 11AM.

If all is right in the world, students will refer to Ramones Way as the “Road to Ruin” and faculty will tell young scholars to refrain from driving down the newly minted street outside “Rock ‘n’ Roll High School” while sedated.

Ramones Way will be the latest public dedication to the band: the corner of Bowery and East 2nd Street — near the old CBGB where the band made their mark — was fitted with a sign for Joey Ramone Place in 2003.
