J. Edward Moreno, The Hill, June 9, 2020

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) said Tuesday that a street at a “crucial” location in each of the city’s five borough’s will be renamed “Black Lives Matter.”

“What will be clear — the street name and on the streets of our city — is that message that now this city must fully, fully deeply feel and this nation must as well, that black lives matter,” de Blasio said.

One of the locations will be near City Hall in Manhattan, and the other locations will be decided by activists and city leaders.
