It was all a dream! The corner of Fulton Street and St. James Place in Clinton Hill has been renamed “Christopher ‘Notorious B.I.G.’ Wallace Way”

Hip-hop legends, fans and Bedford-Stuyvesant locals gathered around and celebrated the renaming of the corner of Fulton Street and St. James Place in Clinton Hill to “Christopher ‘Notorious B.I.G.’ Wallace Way”. Biggie grew up just steps away at 226 St. James Places

“I always knew this day was gonna come, I used to dream about a street being named after Biggie, because it was only right.” Lil Kim says

City Council finally approved the co-naming of the corner of St. James Place and Fulton Street, Christopher Wallace Way last fall, following a controversial, years-long push by local activists to get the designation.
