The road in front of Forest Hills High school was renamed “The Ramones Way’ on Sunday October 30th 2016.

The street was given the name because of the fact that the 4 original band members (Johnny, Joey, Tommy and Dee Dee) met while attending Forest Hills High.

It does seem a tad ironic given that when the band released their debut album 40 years ago the school probably did everything they could to distance themselves from the band.

Funny how things can change in a mere 4 decades.

Thanks to Jason Steinberg for these photos from the renaming event.

One can only wonder if in the future the school itself will be renamed “Rock N’ Roll High School”.
