Trale Tevis started this petition to Mayor of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and

The purpose of this petition is to seek the formal renaming of the New York City neighborhood Bay Ridge to Bayonetta Ridge. This renaming would be in honor of Bayonetta, the titular main character of PlatinumGames' Bayonetta (2009) and Bayonetta 2 (2014). These two games are two of the most creative, sophisticated and fun video games to have been made. However, someone does not need to have played them or understand their convoluted time travel plots or byzantine occultism to understand the massive appeal of Bayonetta as a character. Bayonetta is brilliant, beautiful, charismatic, funny, and powerful and can be a source of inspiration for everyone. Her mythological and archetypal qualities position her perfectly as a neighborhood mascot with staying power. After the renaming, a statue of Bayonetta (preferably at least 3 meters tall) can be built in Owl's Head Park or Shore Road Park. An accompanying Jeanne could then also be built. Tourists would flock to see these statues, bringing major revenue to the neighborhood. This revenue could be further increased by changing building codes to require all new construction to be in the European and Baroque styles of the games. The existing Italian community in Bay Ridge would greet these changes with open arms. The homophonous nature of the name change would ensure an easy and seamless transition. This name change would increase the profile of the neighborhood with virtually no drawbacks. Welcome to Bayonetta Ridge!
