It’s finally happening!

Earlier we reported that Run DMC will be a street name in honor of their old neighborhood.  Well it’s finally happening, people. City Councilman Leroy Comrie recently enacted legislation to rename 205th Street and Hollis to RUN-D.M.C. J.M.J. The bill passed unanimously back in June and signed into law by New York Mayor, Michael Bloomberg.

Run DMC, the hip-hop group pioneer which consists of Pastry’s own Vanessa and Angela Simmons’ dad Joseph “DJ Run” Simmons, Darryl “D.M.C.” McDaniels, and the late Jason “Jam-Master Jay” Mizell has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame back in April and now they’re officially an NYC street name. Talk about a year of accomplishments. Congratulations to RUN DMC, again!

If any of you Pastryheads happen to live around Hollis, you can attend the Run-DMC’s street renaming ceremony on Sunday, August 30, 2009 from 11 AM to 4 PM. The unveiling of the street sign begins at 1:00 PM. Who knows? You might just bump into Angela or Vanessa Simmons. And if you do, don’t forget to take some pictures and dish with all of us here.
