Steely Dan’s Walter Becker Will Get His Own New York City Street

A touching tribute to the late rock legend, Walter Becker: The New York City Council will name a street after the Steely Dan member, according to Pitchfork.

The street, located at 112th Street and 72 Drive in the Forest Hill neighbourhood of Queens, will read “Walter Becker Way.” The neighbourhood served as Becker’s stomping grounds before he toured across the globe.

The new sign will be unveiled on October 28.

Becker died on September 3, 2017, from complications with esophageal cancer. He was 67.
