Back in 2001, Cooper Union officials had proposed de-mapping Taras Shevchenko Place, named for the Ukrainian poet, artist and activist. De-mapping would "remove the street from existence in all official matters, and from all official documents."
I lost track of that story... looks like Hall Place is sharing an existence with it for now.
According to Forgotten New York, City Council changed the name of Hall Place to Taras Shevchenko Place in 1978.
And who or what is Hall?
Per the Times from January 1999:
The street that now carries the name of Shevchenko, Ukraine's ''freedom symbol,'' was first known as Hall Street and then as Hall Place, after Charles Henry Hall, a Harlem landowner who sold the property to the city on Dec. 23, 1828.
