Great Staten Island street name origin. I wonder is there's a registered list in Borough Hall or a publication that tells the origin of other street names on Staten Island.
Here in Fort Lauderdale we have mostly numbered street names . There's a subdivision here where the main road which circles the community is called The Boulevard of Champions. All the side streets off the B of C are named after champion race horses. The developer was a big horse racing fan and from what I'm told owned several himself. By naming them in this way he gave nice piece of horse racing history for the community.
Hollywood Florida has an area where all the streets are named after Presidents (I think only up to WWII) - a nice tribute to America's history.
I'm sure just about every town in the USA has streets in tribute to something or someone.
