On Saturday morning, the office of City Councilmember Rosie Mendez led a co-naming ceremony on East 13th Street between Third Avenue and Fourth Avenue.
It is now also known as Cornell Edwards Way.
This is in honor of Edwards, who opened The Flower Stall at 143 E. 13th St. in 1967. He passed in April 2011.
It Was Her New York wrote about Edwards and his role on the block for so many years.
"Cornell wasn't just a neighbor to the people on his block. Cornell was a neighbor to his neighborhood."
It Was Her New York shared three stories about Edwards in October 2011. You may find those here ... here ... and here.
