As we first reported on Oct. 5, there's an ongoing campaign to co-name part of St. Mark's Place after the late Jimmy Webb.
The online petition is nearing 4,500 signatures, including Jimmy's friend Slash from Guns N' Roses.
Tomorrow (Sunday!), employees from Webb's former boutique, I Need More, will be on St. Mark's Place to collect more signatures to co-name the block between Second Avenue and Third Avenue Jimmy Webb Place
Webb, a familiar figure in the East Village during his long tenure as the manager and buyer at Trash & Vaudeville, died on April 14 of cancer. He was 62.
He started working at his dream destination, Trash & Vaudeville, in 1999, and remained there until the shop relocated from 4 St. Mark's Place to Seventh Street in 2016. He opened I Need More on Orchard Street in October 2017. That store closed this past summer.
The process of co-naming a street within the confines of Community Board 3 is explained on this PDF.
