STREET RENAMING ADVANCES

Sometime this summer, West 92nd Street between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue may be renamed to honor Sidney Morison, the longtime principal of P.S. 84 The Lillian Weber School.

On Jan. 5, Community Board 7 overwhelmingly voted in favor of renaming the street where the school is located, with 26 votes in favor and eight against with one abstention.

In December, Morison’s widow, Jacqueline, proposed the street renaming to the community board to honor his legacy as an education advocate and pioneer of dual-language education.

The nonbinding resolution will now be sent to the City Council to be voted on in a package of street renamings. The approval of Council Member Gale Brewer, whose district contains the block and school, is considered necessary for approval.
