NYC Honorary Street Names
Mary Davies Drive (Staten Island)
Present name:Tennyson Drive
Location:Between Glover Street and Goodall Street
Honoree: Mary Davies (1926-2001) led the drive for implementation of the original South Richmond Plan, which called for control of wetlands and natural areas. When it was defeated in the early 1960s she helped found the Crescent Beach Civic Association. When the battle for a new South Richmond Plan came about she helped mobilize enough community support to have the plan adopted, thus saving the wetlands and open spaces from overdevelopment.
