[Ed. – Fortunately, streets can always be painted over once the current fever breaks.]

Mayor de Blasio announced the City will begin street co-namings and street paintings in all five boroughs to commemorate the Black Lives Matter movement. The Administration will work with the City Council to advance legislation to co-name one street in each borough “Black Lives Matter”, and will work with community activists to paint each street.

“The streets of our city will now affirm the vital work activists have done to bring us forward,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “With a street in every borough painted with the words Black Lives Matter, we are recognizing where we have been and looking forward to where we will go.”

The project will begin in Manhattan near City Hall. The other four locations will be determined in conjunction with the City Council.
