The proposal suggests co-naming University Avenue between Brandt Place and West 176th as Stan Lee Way. Co-naming means the old street name will still show up on maps, as well as on street signs alongside the new name.
Lee has a personal history with the Bronx. He once lived at 1720 University Avenue and attended high school at DeWitt Clinton HS in the Bronx.
All that's still needed to make the proposal official is a mayoral sign-off. The New York City Council didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
Lee died in November 2018 at 95. He'll be back as a kid in ancalled The Amazing Stan.
