(Classic Rock) A street in New York City is set to be named Ramones Way in honor of the legendary punk rock band, according to Joey Ramone's brother Mickey Leigh

A street in the Forest Hill area of Queens will be given the new name sometime in September or October, Leigh reveals in an online post via the Joey Ramone Facebook page.

Leigh says: "Persistence, and patience, paid off. Yesterday, I received a call informing me that the bill was passed approving a street in front of Forest Hills High School be renamed Ramones Way. Hey Ho. Way to go!" See the full post here.
