Queens, N.Y.’s Newest Street: Walter Becker Way
The late Walter Becker is getting a street named after him in his New York City childhood neighborhood in Forest Hills, Queens.
Per Rolling Stone, the corner of 112th Street and 72nd Drive will be named Walter Becker Way in a ceremony on October 28. The renaming was approved unanimously by the New York City Council.
Becker’s widow, Delia Becker, said in a statement, “Walter’s fans have decades of experience holding ‘Danfests’ throughout the country, and they always find innovative and eclectic ways of celebrating. It will undoubtedly be a fun and free gathering to honor and commemorate Walter as only they can!”
