River Ave. in the Bronx became even more legendary on Monday when it was renamed Rivera Ave. to honor the great Yankees closer, Mariano Rivera. Rivera was on hand to thank Yankees fans and the city for the honor and personally reveal the new street sign outside of Yankee Stadium. Officials from the city of New York noted it was the Yankees fans that proposed the change and petitioned to make it happen. In fact, the sign that now reads Rivera Ave. outside of the Stadium was even paid for by the fans. Fans took to Twitter to share their excitement over an idea turning into a reality.
