NYC Honorary Street Names


Cooper Stock Way (Manhattan)
Present name:None
Location:Northwest corner of West End Avenue and West 97th Street (300 Block)
Honoree: Cooper Stock was 9 years-old when he was struck and killed in 2014 by a taxi cab driver who failed to yield to a pedestrian. His death resulted in a new city law, called Cooper's Law, that suspends the TLC license of any taxi driver charged with a traffic violation that results in a person's critical injury or death and revokes the license if the driver is convicted of a violation that was the direct cause of the critical injury or death.
