Fair is fair: What street in NYC would you name after Trump?

The story so far: Thousands of people have signed a petition asking for one block of New York City's Fifth Avenue to be renamed "President Barack H. Obama Avenue." The block happens to be the one Trump Tower is sitting on.

We have to be fair. If President Obama, who - last I checked - is not a New Yorker gets a New York street named after him, then it's only fair that the New York born and bred "president" Trump gets one too.

My recommendation is Hazen St. from 19th Avenue north to Hillside Avenue...which is the road that leads to and runs through the New York City jail.

11. That motherfucker doesn't deserve to have ANYTHING named after him.

Other than maybe a giant spittoon to collect all the spit that is reflexively produced whenever people hear his name.

13. How about the block of Waverly Place...

between Gay Street and Grove Street - right where it intersects itself when it forks?

One of the strangest streets in Manhattan. It goes Northwest from Broadway at NYU, along the north border of Washington Square Park, and eventually forks just past Gay Street. Both sides of the fork are Waverly Place. The left fork only goes for a block, to Grove Street. The right fork crosses Christopher Street and takes you further to the north until it ends at Bank Street.

If that sounds strange, look here: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Waverly+Pl,+New+York,+NY/@40.7334831,-74.0013253,82m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x89c259969c953959:0x8a4ed5e9a43bc3ca!8m2!3d40.7344882!4d-74.0014152

(I used to like to confuse people when I lived in NY, so I'd tell them to meet me at the intersection of Waverly Place and Waverly Place in the Village.)

Sort of suits tRump - no one is never certain of what direction he's taking, and he confuses the hell out of pretty much everybody that isn't intimately familiar with him.

21. Are you sure about that?

That's pretty damned close to the Galway Hooker Bar, which just from the name sounds like Trump's kinda place.

22. That was my suggestion.

Maybe we can even get them to name a cell block after Trump.

"John Jones, you have been convicted of the crime of Mortgage Fraud. Your sentence is five years in the Donald J. Trump Building at the state penitentiary. Do you have anything to say before sentence is carried out?"

"Your Honor, I know you're not much into plea bargains, but if I give up the rest of the people who were working for me could you see it in your heart to take me out back and shoot me?"

36. Another vote for Brooklyn's Gowanus Canal, which is a Superfund site:

The oozing sludge on its bottom is referred to as black mayonnaise. It's also cooked up a few of its very own strains of bacteria.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gowanus_Canal

The canal arose in the mid-19th century from local tidal wetlands and freshwater streams. By the end of the 19th century, heavy industrial use had caused large amounts of pollutants to drain into the Gowanus Canal. Various attempts to remove the pollution or dilute the canal's water have failed. Even though most industrial tenants stopped using the Gowanus Canal in the middle of the 20th century, the pollution was never remedied. By the 1990s, it was recognized as one of the most polluted bodies of water in the United States. Owing to pollution with high ratios of fecal coliforms, deadly proportions of pathogens, and a low concentration of oxygen, it is generally seen as incompatible with marine life. A variety of extremophiles have been observed in the Gowanus Canal as well.
