Bill Cunningham's Fitting NYC Tribute

Bill Cunningham who sadly passed away last month, was a regular sight on the sidewalks of Manhattan, snapping street style as he cycled, and now the city has found an apt way to remember him. As of yesterday the corner of 57th and 5th streets will be known as "Bill Cunningham Corner".

New York City mayor, Bill de Blasio, shared the news on his Twitter account, saying: "His vivid photos helped define New York as the fashion capital of the world, so we're naming 57th & 5th after him."

The tribute, although not permanent, comes as the result of a petition that was started shortly after his death and serves as a fitting celebration of the legendary photographer who famously "let the street speak to him".
