Help Rename A Brooklyn Block After Biggie Smalls

August 30, 2013 | Andy Cush

If you sign one thing today, make it this, a Change.org petition to rename the block of Brooklyn’s Fulton Street between St. James and Cambridge Places after one Mr. Christopher Wallace, aka the Notorious B.I.G.

The Clinton Hill block is the one Biggie called home during his childhood, and LeRoy McCarthy hopes to immortalize the rapper by renaming it Christopher Wallace Way. He has 644 supporters so far, and in order to make it a reality, he’ll have to get approval from the local community board, and then City Council.

“Coming from modest beginning the story of Christopher Wallace tells the story of a boy to a man accomplishing greatness, using words as his tools,” McCarthy writes. “The story Christopher Wallace continues to have a resounding influence on new generations although he passed away in 1997.”
