NYC Honorary Street Names
Mother Maria J. Fisher Way (Brooklyn)
Location:Corner of East 15th Street and Avenue X
Honoree: Mother Maria J. Fisher led the effort to construct the first Baptist Church in Sheepshead Bay in 1899. Being a very religious woman and well respected for the religious services she held at an empty lot at East 15th Street and Avenue X, she attracted the attention of a wealthy entrepreneur who provided the two lots needed to construct a church.
