Morningside Heights Block Named ‘George Carlin Way’ In Honor Of Late Comedian



The late comedian grew up on West 121st Street between Broadway and Amsterdam in Morningside Heights.

Carlin often referenced the neighborhood in his many books, television specials and albums.
That neighborhood meant so much to him that he continued to be friends with all the people he grew up with, and hung on corners with and got into trouble with,” Carlin’s daughter, Kelly, told 1010 WINS. “ spoke a lot and often and very fondly about that neighborhood.”

During a special ceremony Wednesday afternoon, a sign went up on the block naming it “George Carlin Way.” Mayor Bill de Blasio signed off on the plan to honor Carlin this summer following a two-year petition drive.

PHOTO OF THE CENTURY


I'm sure you've seen the world's most famous photograph, "Earthrise". It's been on the cover of TIME and on stamps. But did you know it almost didn't happen?

This occurred over 45 years ago, on Christmas Eve, 1968. The site below is outstanding. It takes you right onto the module with the 3 astronauts and you hear them as they see it for the first time
