This Sunday (August 30), a historic Street Renaming Ceremony will take place honoring Hollis, New York Hip-Hop pioneers Run-DMC.
City Councilman Leroy Comrie recently enacted legislation to rename 205th Street and Hollis Avenue to RUN-D.M.C. J.M.J.
Comries bill was passed unanimously in June and signed into law by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
“Given their historic accomplishments, Run-D.M.C. is a tremendous source of pride for the Hollis community I represent,” Comrie told AllHipHop.com in a previous statement. “Their dedication and hard work has inspired countless others and they have given back generously to this community.
The news caps off a busy year for the group.
In April, Run-D.M.C. was inducted into the prestigious Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
Run-D.M.C.s street renaming ceremony will take place from 11AM-4PM on Sunday, August 30.
The unveiling of the street sign begins at 1:00 PM.
