BK resident LeRoy McCarthy wants people to sign a petition calling for New York City to co-name the corner of the rapper’s childhood home, St. James and Fulton Place, “Christopher Wallace Way.”
Considering that much of Biggie Smalls interwove Brooklyn into the fold of many of his intricate tales, it would only be fitting to commemorate the prolific artist. Doing so would also be a way for a neighborhood that’s very fabric continues to change due to gentrification.
Case in point, B.I.G.’s childhood home at at 226 St. James Place has been renovated into a lavish condominium that listed for $725,000 earlier this year.
Only 178 more signatures are needed.
