The city of New York recently approved renaming the Morningside Heights street where George Carlin grew up as “George Carlin Way” in honor of the late stand-up comedian.
And on Oct. 22, 2014, the physical signs will match the digital ones.
Kelly Carlin, George’s only child, will join comedian Kevin Bartini (who spearheaded the street naming effort) and others in an official dedication, party and whatnot. Scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. that Wednesday at the corner of West 121st Street and Amsterdam Avenue.
The Comic’s Comic will bring you more details as they become available.
