Mariano Rivera Honored With His Own Street [Photo]

River Ave. on the block near 161 street in the Bronx will now be named Rivera Ave.

The New York City Council voted 47-0 to renaming the street right outside of Yankee Stadium, where he had to pass to get to his job for over 19 years.

New York Post began the campaign with a cover page that can be seen below.

Now every time you walk to Yankee Stadium you will remember the future Hall of Fame pitcher.
