An online petition has surfaced seeking to “honor” President Barack Obama with his own street.
The street that liberals are seeking to rename lies in the heart of Midtown on Fifth Avenue between East 56th and East 57th streets – which just so happens to be the current location of Trump Tower and most likely headquarters of Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign.

The petition praises former President Barack Obama for taking out Osama bin Laden and serving two “scandal-free terms.”
A passerby outside Trump Tower told WPIX: “Yea I do think it’s petty, but then again, so is [Trump].”
As of Monday evening, the petition to rename the Avenue garnered over 22, 000 signatures, just 3,000
Elizabeth Rowin the petition’s organizer told WPIX that the idea to rename Fifth Avenue came from a meme that popped up online a year ago that poked fun at what would eventually become Trump Tower’s address “forever” – if it were to happen.
Rowin plans to submit the signatures to Mayor de Blasio and the New York City Council. Approval from both is required to make the re-naming happen.
