This is just the latest in a series of renamings of familiar NYC landmarks for politicians and celebrities, by other politicians who are pandering to seek votes.

Interborough Parkway renamed to Jackie Robinson Parkway.

West Side Highway renamed to Joe DiMaggio Highway.

Triborough Bridge renamed to Robert Kennedy Bridge.

Queensborough Bridge renamed to Edward Koch Bridge.
