New York City Honors Muhammad Ali With a Street Sign
There has been an outpouring of tributes since Muhammad Ali's death on Friday, and now New York City is honoring the boxing legend. Daughter Laila Ali took to Instagram on Tuesday to reveal the temporary street sign bearing her father’s name on West 33rd street.
"New York City temporarily named a street after my father. Such an honor for the G.O.A.T. [Greatest Of All Time]," she wrote. "I'm sending love and positive vibes to all of you who have ever lost someone you love! Thank you for all of your kind words and condolences."
You can see in the photo a worker hanging a special sign that reads Muhammad Ali Way in front of Madison Square Garden, where a number of Ali’s famous fights took place. Locals and tourists were seen snapping photos of the honorary street name as well.
The three-time World Heavyweight Champion boxer died after a 32-year battle with Parkinson's disease at the age of 74.
