Stan Lee Is Getting a Street Named After Him in the Bronx


Yes! It’s about time! Stan Lee died in November 2018 at the age of 95, but his incredible artistic legacy will live on forever (as we all know). I mean, the man pretty much invented the modern comic book industry. Now, Lee’s legacy will be acknowledged in another way besides his amazing body of work.

Stan was given keys to many cities, Stan Lee Days were signed into law in states and towns across the country, and now he’ll finally get his own street in New York City, where he grew up. (Not this one – this is Stan Lee Blvd. at Universal’s Islands of Adventure in Orlando.) Check out our story for more info!

City Council member Fernando Cabrera represents this area of the Bronx, and he proposed the idea. Cabrera said, “Mr. Lee’s amazing talent brought joy and entertainment to countless children and adults and he deserves to be permanently memorialized in his home borough, the Bronx.”

It was evident that Lee was greatly missed at the recent San Diego Comic-Con with a number of tributes being paid to the master.

Lee was so beloved by fans, and he felt the same way about them. In one of his final interviews, Lee said,

“Sometimes at night, I am sitting here and I’m thinking ‘What’s it all about?” And then I get a letter from a fan or I read something or I see something or I remember something. And I realize, it’s so lucky to have fans, fans who really care about you.”
