Change River Avenue to Rivera Avenue

    1. Petition by

      Thomas Ferrara

      Hoboken, NJ

Mariano Rivera's inspiration and class have done so much for not only New York City, but for the game of baseball. To honor the greatest closer of all time - if not one of the best baseball players of all time - rally together with us to have New York City change the popular River Avenue behind Yankee Stadium to Rivera Avenue.
