To: New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and New York City Council

Rename Fifth Avenue in front of Trump Tower: "President Barack H. Obama Avenue"

We request the stretch of Fifth Avenue between 56th and 57th Streets be renamed "President Barack H. Obama Avenue." Any addresses on that stretch of Fifth Avenue should be changed accordingly.

Why is this important?

The City of Los Angeles recently honored former President Barack Obama by renaming a stretch of the 134 Freeway near Downtown L.A. in his honor.

We request the New York City Mayor and City Council do the same by renaming a block of Fifth Avenue after the former president whose many accomplishments include: saving our nation from the Great Recession; serving two completely scandal-free terms in office; and taking out Osama bin Laden, the mastermind behind September 11th, which killed over 3,000 New Yorkers.


Reasons for signing

  • To honor a man of Honor. Thank you Pres. Obama.
  • Because he refuses to honor Obama by unveiling his portrait, breaking a 40 year White House tradition. I think seeing his name on the street of his residence would be fitting karma.
  • To honor one of the greatest presidents to serve our country.
