Amy Winehouse To Be Immortalized with Street Named After Her

Amy Winehouse To Be Immortalized with Street Named After Her
Two years after her tragic death, the late singer Amy Winehouse may be immortalized in a unique new way.

In Northern London’s King’s Cross area, just a stone’s throw from where the prolific Jewish singer lived, a movement is afoot in which locals have been asked to submit ten street names for a new area that is under construction and will be home to new housing.

Fan’s of Amy have submitted their choices for street names, and not surprisingly, Winehouse Street and Winehouse Way are the leading candidates at this point in the proceedings.

“To think that our surname would be indelibly linked with London through the naming of a street after Amy is remarkable,” Amy’s father, Mitch, told Bizarre. “We’re a London family through and through and it would be a tremendous honour if we do become a literal part of the fabric of this great city.”

And, should Amy’s name grace one of the street signs in the new area, she’d be among some pretty impressive company with the new roads near the railway station honouring literary giants such as Charles Dickens and Frankenstein author Mary Shelley.

And, if that’s not enough, dad Mitch has been working on a statue to be put up in Camden next year, and has also confirmed that a documentary about the life of his famous daughter is in the works.
