(hennemusic) The Ramones will be honored with a street named Ramones Way during an October 23 ceremony in their hometown of Queens, NY. The street sign will be unveiled at the intersection of 67th Avenue and 110th Street in front of the main entrance of Forest Hills High School, which was attended by the band's original lineup of John Cummings (Johnny Ramone), Jeffrey Hyman (Joey Ramone), Douglas Colvin (Dee Dee Ramone) and Thomas Erdelyi (Tommy Ramone).

Ramones Way follows a proposal passed by the City Council on July 14, according to councilwoman Karen Koslowitz, who sponsored the co-naming after speaking with Mitchell Leigh Hyman, the brother of Joey Ramone, at the opening of the "Hey! Ho! Let's Go: Ramones And The Birth Of Punk" exhibit at the Queens Museum in April.

"Our community of Forest Hills has been the home of many famous artists," says Koslowitz. "Many legendary musicians also attended Forest Hills High School including Paul Simon, Art Garfunkel, Burt Bacharach, as well as the members of the famous punk rock group the Ramones. The Ramones played well in the 1990s and received numerous accolades and awards including an induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

"Working with Joey Ramone's brother and Forest Hills resident Mickey Leigh and fans of the band, I am so very pleased to honor our hometown musical heroes by renaming 67th Avenue and 110th Street in front of Forest Hills High School, right where it all started as 'The Ramones Way'."
