NeighborhoodX recently launched an interactive map called Renaming NYC which provides humorous and incorrect origins for the naming of well-known NYC streets.

Since no one seems to know history anymore, we renamed NYC places for celebrities and products. We present: (Ashley) Madison Avenue. Jay (and Silent Bob) Street. (Anna Nicole) Smith Street. (Jean Claude) Vandam Street. (The Street Formerly Known as) Prince Street. Orange (is the New Black) Street. Borough Hall (and Oates). Stone (Cold Steve Austin) Street. Duane ("The Rock" Johnson) Street. And of course, Throop (There It Is) Avenue.

Check out the interactive map to play around with the data.
