To continue her brother’s legacy by giving back, sister of the late Big Pun Nicole “Nicky” Rodriguez personally will be donating “Back to school’ supplies for the upcoming 2011/2012 school year for the elementary school aged children who reside on the street named Rogers Place in the Bronx. This is the street she has put much effort into re-naming (co-naming) to Christopher “Big Pun” Rios Place.Nicole stated "With Rogers Place being the memorial location for the past 11 years of my brother's mural- On top of that, for the residents of this street to allow Tats Cru to paint over their walls to make year after year murals of my brother, to except our family, friends and fans to overwhelm their street named Rogers Place -It is only appropriate that I start giving from this location". If you would like to donate school supplies for this cause it will be greatly appreciated for the educational future of our children. You can mail school supply donations starting now to business mailing address: Att; Nicole Rodriguez P.O Box 771463, Orlando, FL 32877-No monetary (No money) donation!! Only School supplies and/or book bags or gift cards (Office Max, Walmart, Kmart, Staples, Office Depot and Target)-Nicole has future plans to help other areas including her birth home of Soundview in the Bronx. Nicole stated “I want to be like a secret santa and give back surprisingly, this was me and my brother’s childhood dream." Let’s make a difference one street at a time.Any questions email: bigpunplace@gmail.com

It's not going to happen. Allot of preexisting names for street renaming who are more deserving. This person, as saddening his death was, did not contribute anything heroic or humane to warrant a street in honor of his name.
